Kitchens That Make The Cut – While a few holdouts persist, the days of the itinerant knife sharpener who cruises the neighborhood in a little truck are waning. To fill the void, a increasing number of mail-order knife-sharpening businesses have popped up, simply approachable on the Web.
A good sharpening that enlarge the life of a lovely knife is one of the best speculation of these recessionary times.
Norman Weinstein, knife-skills instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, recommends using a reputable professional instead of trying to sharpen your knives at home “because the learning curve for doing it yourself is so high.”
We tried five different services across the country and, in general, were impressed with the results. Sharpening techniques differed among the services, ranging from one cutler (as knife sharpeners are called) who uses a motorized grinding wheel and a series of “water” or whetstones, to a sharpener who uses a two-horsepower belt grinder and up to six sharpening and polishing wheels.
