EMERGENCY PHONE CHARGING HACK
Man Cut in Half Costume
Honing after each use isn't always necessary. What's important is the amount of use after the last honing. If you cut up just one cucumber, you're not going to need to hone, but you might need to after cutting 5 lbs of potatoes. Personally, I only hone after several light-medium uses and after every heavy use. If you start a job and your knife is cutting sub-par, you can always clean it a give it a quick hone. Remember, although honing is mostly straightening the knife edge, you still are removing some material. If you hone all the time, you're likely wearing away your blade unnecessarily.
