A sharp knife is much safer than a blunt one. It cuts cleanly and does not slip, causing few accidents. Yet most people don't know how to sharpen a knife and keep it sharp. This evening course shows you the secrets of getting and maintaining a fine edge. Knife care and storage will also be covered to ensure your knife stays sharp.
The evening will begin with a discussion on determining sharpness and knife care, followed by a short theory session on sharpening. Five different methods will be demonstrated in setting an edge as well as burr removal, honing and touching up. This will be followed with a practical session where you get to sharpen the knives that you have brought with you.
Bring plenty of blunt knives, scissors or garden cutters to practice on.
