May 6, 2010 - PRLog -- One of the most annoying things to encounter when cooking is a blunt knife, and this becomes very evident when you try to slice a tomato or dice an onion. A sharp knife is a chef's best friend and therefore it's helpful if you know how to sharpen kitchen knives.
Home sharpening methods include using sharpening steel, drawing knives across a flat sharpening stone, or using a commercial knife sharpener.

Using a Sharpening Steel

•   Hold the steel - a metal rod designed for sharpening knives - in one hand
•   With the other hand, hold the knife by its handle.
•   Place the knife just under the handle of the steel, with the knife handle touching the bottom of the steel handle.
•   With the knife at a 10- to 25-degree angle to the steel, hold the steel rod steady and draw the knife blade down the steel.
•   Repeat several times until the entire cutting surface of the knife has been drawn across the steel on both sides of the blade.
