Home cooks, professional chefs, and knife enthusiasts all use and care for knives on a regular basis. However, people may often wonder what the best way to keep their knives sharp is. After all, a dull knife is all but useless. It can be difficult to understand at times, due to the older terminology that persists through to today, and many may simply resort to using a machine without a second thought. However, machines aren’t always the best option, and for certain knives it can cause serious damage.
Hobanco is a company centered around knives, and they’ve taken the time to explain the ins and outs of knife sharpening in a simple but effective way. The article is written like a guide, which includes step by step instructions and helpful tips that could make the process go easier. The guide itself involves more than just the easy to read text instructions, as videos can be seen to give aid for those who are more visual centric in their learning.
Hobanco opens their article with a quick word on what options there are for materials that can be used for knife sharpening. This list includes sharpening stones, sharpening and honing steel, electric knife sharpeners, coffee mugs, and even rocks. Before the guide goes into details about each particular item though, they explain some terminology to help the reader better understand the topic.
While they don’t go into detail regarding the electric sharpeners, likely as they all come with their own instructions and can operate different between them, they do explain the other options for the reader. They explain what the option is, what qualifies for it, how it may affect the knife or be affected by the knife, and some of the best techniques to use the object efficiently. At the end of each of these categories they supply example videos for each item and its respective methods.
