5 Ways To Sharpen Your Knife

Nothing lasts forever, that’s a universal rule that applies to all things even knife edges.  When that time comes that your knife can’t even cut butter there a few different ways you can approach the problem. Some are better than others, but all of them should put a decent edge on your blade and that’s what counts at the end of the day. Remember a dull blade is ten times more dangerous that a sharp one.

These are made to be quick, easy and cheap. They’ll serve in a pinch, but will never put a razor sharp edge on your blade. I’d only recommend using them on cheap knives, with relatively soft steel.

Another thing you should consider when buying a pull through sharpener is the material the sharpening edges are made out of. For example a ceramic is fine, but you should avoid carbide ones like the plague. They literally shave metal off the blade leaving you with a toothpick inside a year of regular use.
