Keeping your knives sharp is essential to your kitchen and you need to sharpen your knives to keep them working at their best.
What you’ll need:
Sharpening steel and your knives.
1. Position your knife at right angles to the sharpening steel.
2. With the knife at a 10-degree angle to the steel, gently slide the knife along the steel, applying some pressure. As you slide the knife, slide the knife away from the steel so the whole knife-edge is sharpened.
3. Repeat with the other side of the knife blade by repeating this underneath the sharpening steel.
