Real Food Simplified- Making Your Kitchen Go Round: Basic Care of Knives

Last week I talked about the importance of having GOOD knives. Today I am talking about the basic care of knives, including the biggest misunderstanding of knife care, confusing honing and sharpening. If you use a “sharpening” steel at home to sharpen your knives, PLEASE watch.

First though…

Thank you for being patient with me as I learn how to do videos. I just watched it and realized I said “blade” instead of edge the entire time. Sharpening is giving a brand new EDGE not blade, ect. That’s almost as bad as writing about “excepting” a day of rest like I wrote about on Tuesday. How many of you saw that? I was SOO embarrassed. Maybe I should neither post nor video when half asleep.


  1. Great video – I learned some new things! I never knew knives should be honed. You did a great job!
