A dull knife is dangerous to use and can lead to frustration while chopping, mincing, slicing, or dicing. In this video, we demonstrate how to sharpen a knife at home using a simple kitchen tool: a handheld knife sharpener.
There are many ways to keep your knife sharp – using a honing steel, handheld sharpener, electric sharpener, or whetstone.
We recommend professionally sharpening your knives about once a year or as needed (we’ve definitely gone longer than a year!). In between sharpening sessions, a handheld sharpener is an easy tool to use; it doesn’t require any complex skills, unlike using a whetstone.
