Sharpening a knife correctly can be misconstrued as a relatively straightforward task you have seen done hundreds of time in the kitchen, on commercials (usually infomercials!) and on TV. Is it a simple case of rubbing the knife on a knife sharpener a few times, maybe using a designated sharpener and the old ‘rub two sharp objects together trick? Well the answer is you could probably get away with doing the above but little do you know you could be doing damage to the knife itself and you wouldn’t necessarily get the best results.
So here are a few tips on how to properly sharpen your kitchen knife and although it isn’t hard, there may be a few more steps than you originally thought!
This is probably not your standard procedure of sharpening a knife but if you follow the steps then you will most likely have a blade as sharp, if not sharper, than when you first bought it.
