Knife Sharpening

I from time to time get asked about knife sharpening.  I have a couple of sharpening steels I use to sharpen my knives.  I sharpen most of my knives before every use.  A dull knife is a dangerous knife.  I’m attaching a link about knife sharpening (http://culinaryarts.about.com/od/culinarytools/qt/sharpen.htm)  so you can do it yourself.  Or, if your knives need professional help, search your market for a knife shop.  I use as a local (Sacramento area) guy that does a great job sharpening knives.  Al Warren.   Email Al at Al@warrenknives.com or give him a call (916) 257-5904.  I take my knives to him periodically for a professional “deep” sharpening while keeping the knives tuned up daily with the steel.  Al makes great custom knives as well so check out his website at http://warrenknives.com/
