They say dull knives are responsible for more injuries and more serious injuries than sharp knives. Here’s a tutorial for you with tips we picked up at CookLA in Studio City, where owner, Chef Liz demonstrated the proper technique for honing your kitchen knives at home. Knives should be honed after (or before) each use and sharpened annually by a professional. We’re still looking for a professional sharpener in our area to recommend. I promise to share the info when I’ve got an answer for you. Rumor has it that there’s a truck that mysteriously appears in grocery store parking lots, where you drop off your knives and return to pick them up after your errands are done. There are scores of reviews on Yelp for a couple of knife sharpening professionals who make the rounds of local farmers markets, too. Prices range from $4 to $10 per knife. I’ll post an update after I have a chance to get my own knives sharpened. In the meantime, I’ll be honing away at home!
