How to Sharpen Knives


While there’s definitely an argument to be made for taking your knives to a pro to get sharpened, there’s also a case to be made for doing it yourself. “I highly recommend knife sharpening,” says Eivin Kilcher, homesteader, cookbook author, and one of our “Cutting Board” knife experts. “It really is a great skill to bring into your life and an important thing to be able to do at home.”

That said, the first time you do it — and even the first dozen times you do it — can be intimidating. But practice makes perfect. Even Kilcher, who has been using knives since he was 10, notes, “Every time I sharpen a knife, I’m getting better. Sharpening knives is a lifelong art.” ~ Geraldine Campbell of the Kitchn
