There is nothing, more stressful (at least for me) nor more dangerous than a dull kitchen knife. The times that I have cut myself with a knife was when I had a dull knife in my hand and instead of cutting through the food, the knife would slide off, and got me! Of all the nerve! So in many ways, a sharp kitchen knife is a lot safer than a dull one. You really don’t need NEW knives. You need the ones you own to be sharpened. So here we go on "How to Sharpen Your Straight Edge Kitchen Knives".
