Knife Sharpeners

As a chef, nothing is more important than a sharp knive. Not only a sharp knive gives you more more control but also a dull knive not only damages itself but also the vegetables that you might be slicing or dice especially delicate herbs.  

Types of Kitchen Knife Sharpener

Handheld Knife Sharpener are a great tool to have in the kitchen as it's quick and convenient, also doesn’t require too much effort to use. 

Whetstone will get your knives much sharper but is is more of manual work involved. It is quite straight forward that you move the knife across the wet stone, removing steel and revealing a new and a sharpened edge.

 Types Of Whetstones
1. A stone with a grit number below 1000 is the so-called low-grit stone. It is perfect for blunt knives and tools and usually has two sides – one for sharpening and the other one for removing chips or nicks from blades. Though the process takes some time you are sure to have great results in the end!

2. Stones between 1000 and 3000 grit number are medium-grit stones and are considered the best when it comes to regular sharpening and recovering of blunt edges. Still, don’t use this stone unless necessary as it is not as coarse as the low-grit one.

3. Last but not least are the so-called finishing high-grit stones that give you the perfect edge for your meat cutting (4000-6000) or vegetable cutting knife (8000).

How to sharpen kitchen knives

Horning steel is not to sharpen the knives but restore the bent edge on the go in the kitchen.
