I usually take my cutlery to the local gourmet shop twice a year but I’m tied to the once-a-month schedule that the mobile sharpening service has.
Never really thought about sending my steel to someone via UPS but it definitely would make it easier to schedule! Having a sharp knife not only makes the job easier it actually has been found to make it SAFER since you have more control and use less force.
Do yourself a favor & keep your knives as sharp as you can and make sure to use a honing steel before each use!
Most of my friends know one of my passions is cooking. Well, actually it’s food in general. Some people eat to live, but I live to eat. I really enjoy learning new techniques and cooking for friends and family.
One of my favorite kitchen tools is an 8″ chefs knife from a Japanese company called Global. A great knife makes all the difference when it comes to prepping a great meal. The Global line of knives features a one-piece design that not only makes it very to clean, it feels great in the hand after a lot of use.
A sharp knife is a safe knife, so I make sure to use a honing steel before each use as well as take advantage of affordable sharpening services from the local gourmet store at least twice a year.
If you’re in the market for a new set of kitchen knives or you’re looking for a perfect gift for the cook in your family, I really recommend you check out Global knives (available at fine kitchen stores and on-line).
