How A Knife Is Dulled and Sharpened It is not right to assume that there is more danger with a sharp knife than with a dull knife. You are actually safer when you are using a sharp knife because there is less chance that it will slip to your fingers the same way that a dull knife actually can. Other than that, a sharp knife simply cut well than their dull counterpart. With a sharp knife, you don’t use great force to get through food so that you don’t exert much effort in your work. And with a sharp knife you are actually cutting the pieces and not ripping them apart which is best for delicate greens and herbs. Another very misunderstood subject that one must take note of in sharpening knives – is steeling and stropping. This is apparently because this simplistic procedurefor many needs no brainer -since both do serve the same purpose anyway! This may be true yet the thing is that each of these serves a completely different process. Rubbing your knife energetically against a grooved butcher’s steel for many is already sharpening your knife, which is completely absurd. Understanding how it is to sharpen a knife involves determining the part of the knife that needs to be processed in order to accomplish the purpose. Working with the steel of the knife, we don’t really intend to sharpen it but merely to thin out the metal part which is the actual cutting edge throughout the entire blade of the knife. You knife will usually have deformed edges due to dents and metal flakes that have been peeled off because of constant use, and so what we are doing when we thin is to realigned these deformed edges to make one smoothened edge. Stropping on the other hand has the same intent but done to refine the edge on the micro level. In this the edge is dragged backwards, not a pushed forwardstroke in the case of steeling.

It is the common belief that a knife’s edge gets dull because it loses some metal due to constant rubbing across on the surface of a medium so that it loses some atoms in the process, but this is not the real case although that wear happens too, but this type of wear has a very minimal effect. What dulls a knife is found in the micro level where the thin edge can very easily chip off not because it is subjected to the significant amount of pressure that is applied when cutting, but that the tendency of our hands wobbles left and right that induce the very thin metal to chip, bend and fold.Lessons Learned from Years with Tools
