3 Most Important Considerations When Sharpening Your Knives

When sharpening your kitchen knives or any other knives it is important to remember three key things.

First and foremost electric knife sharpeners utilize spinning discs which can create localized heat along the edge of the blade.  This can cause damage to the temper of the steel.  This translates to inconsistencies in the hardness of the steel along the cutting edge making the blade susceptible to chipping, premature dulling, and corrosion.
