Sharp Knives- The Only Kind I've Got!
About once a year, I get my automatic knife sharpener down from the closet, and give my set of Wusthof knives a thorough sharpening. Throughout the year, I just use a ceramic sharpener, and touch them up with a Butchers' steel.. The three stage sharpener is easy and fast, and I have always felt a sharp knife is safer than a dull one! Take note: These are working knives, not "show" knives.. Wusthof uses a blend of steel that makes them pretty corrosion resistant, and still easy to sharpen- unlike the usual 440C Stainless steel knives! The handles do not like the dishwasher- I learned that after it was too late..Missing in photo- the kitchen scissors, which didn't need sharpening this day.. Even with all my kitchen gizmos, I still prefer to use a knife!
