Professional Knife Sharpeners

Even though humans have been cooking for centuries the basic kitchen tools stay the same, the knife is one of those tool. In almost all of today's kitchens keeping a knife sharp only calls for a simple pull-through knife sharpener, sharpening stone, or sharpening steel should be enough. In fact, this occasional task takes just a bit elbow grease, and your knifes will be back in top condition in no time. On the other hand, if you use your tools frequently, often find yourself chipping them or otherwise wearing them down, or are a professional chef or anyone else who uses a selection of kitchen knifes on an everyday basis, you will want to consider a business or professional model. Keeping your knifes sharpened will allow you to focus on your work, not your tools.

In the previous couple of years most of the people moved to knife sharpener that is electric. This helps reduce the effort an means you don't have to manually pull each knife thru the sharpener multiple times. Those with angle guides can further cut back the work wanted to quickly and efficiently sharpen your knifes. With an electrical sharpener, even a particularly lifeless kitchen knife can be sharpened in mere seconds. Plus, electric sharpeners can simply handle high-volume sharpening without wearing down.

If you're looking for a good sharpener there are a few solid ground rules you need to doubtless follow. Choose a fine quality electrical sharpener or sharpening wheel that is meant to stand up to the quantity of use you require. Choose the grit size according to your requirements ; if you plan to sharpen your knifes daily, choose a finer grit, while more occasional sharpening may need a rougher grit to remove more metal from the blades.

If you're a cook who needs extra-sharp knifes available straight away, this solution can give you the sharpest edge possible with just some passes.

If you use many tools with lades,eg axes or chainsaws, you can also sharpen these yourself rather than sending them out for pricey upkeep. Often , you will not be in a position to use an electrical sharpener because these sharpeners have a slot for the knife blade, and are designed for kitchen-sized knifes. A grinding wheel can also be used to sharpen such odd-sized blades.

Using your own knife sharpener can save everyone a bunch of cash because you may no longer need to send your blades out for professional knife sharpening. No matter what kind of knifes or blades you use on an everyday basis, you will find a sharpening option that will enable you to sharpen them yourself.

In any case it is a sure thing that keeping your kitchen knives sharp will save you a lot of energy and effort, will make your cooking experiance much nicer and easier, and that keeping the kinves in good condition will make sure you will be able to use them for many more years to come. The one more hting you need to know about sharp knives is the fact that a sharp knive is also a cleaner knife, it might sound like a detail, but sometimes you need to make sure your knives are sharp and clean.

About the Author

Gorko Lortui writes about home and kitchen tools, giving tips and ideas on better home and kitchen management

Is it better to use a flat stone or ceramic rods for sharpening a knife? And which is easier?

Ceramic and metal rods simply realign the microscopic "teeth" on the metal of the blade, they do not actually sharpen the knife. Using a knife especially on cutting boards other than wood, dulls them by misaligning the cutting edge.
A stone will sharpen the knife if used properly, but I don't know a lot of people who know how to do that. The proper angle is about 22.5 degrees for either product. However, the sharpening stone actually sets the edge by scraping a very tiny bit of steel off. Some hunters I know will use an oiled sharpening stone on their knives, saying the oil assists in the process by keeping the metal blade cooler and more lubricated, thus lessening the potential for putting infinitesmal dull spots on the sharp edge.

I am not sold on the roller type sharpeners you can buy or those that come on can openers. They don't allow a lot of control. However, they will do some sharpening.

Many professional cooks send their special knives to pros for sharpening, at a cost of between $5 and $10 a knife. They then use the ceramic or metal honing rod just to keep the edge in alignment.
