Knife Sharpening

The more you use your knives, the more frequently you’ll have to sharpen them. Guess you didn’t need us to tell you that.

To maintain a sharp edge (the sharper the knife, the safer the knife), you should hone your knives once a week and do a full, at-home sharpening once a month. 

There are a number of great products on the market that the everyday chef can use (including ours!).  Once you do it once or twice, it gets less scary - we promise.

Each of our team members still have 10 fingers.
