Why sharpen knives?

Your knives will be your most important galley tool, bar none. Keeping any tool in good working order is key to being able to use them well - knives are no exception. This video tackles 2 of the "tool specific" ways of sharpening knives - I will be adding a video that shows the manual ways (a steel and a honing block) soon.

You may also sharpen your knives with a local sharpening service, or use one of the mail order ones found through Williams-Sonoma and even your local hardware store. The thing is when you're cruising, you want to be self-sufficient.

Even when it comes to keeping your knives sharp.
