Practical and Helpful Tips: Utensils

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. On the contrary, it is much safe to handle a sharp knife because it is very predictable when you are cutting something, and the chances that it will slip towards your fingers is lessened, unlike with a dull knife. Also, when it comes to cutting, sharp knives cut well but not the dull ones. 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. it also means, that you are cutting them instead of ripping them apart, which means that it is even more substantive to delicate greens and herbs. Steeling and stropping are misunderstood subjects when one talks about sharpening knives. The reason for this is many take using a knife as a no brainer since however you sharpen things, the end result is simply the same. While they serve the same purpose, the process is entirely different. Rubbing your knife energetically against a grooved butcher’s steel for many is already sharpening your knife, which is completely absurd. Sharpening a knife is not that simple since you first need to determine what part of the knife that needs to be processed so that the knife will really be sharpened. When one works with the steel, the intent is not to sharpen but simply to thin out the metal part found at the actual cutting edge throughout the entire blade of the knife. Since the knife will have a deformed edge after a number of uses due to dents and metal flakes that have been peeled off, the purpose then of thinning it is to realign these deformed edges and smoothen them. The act of stopping on the other hand is also to make a knife sharp but what you do here is refining the edge of the knife on the micro level. In this the edge is dragged backwards, not a pushed forwardstroke in the case of steeling.

Also, contrary to the popular belief that knife edge does get dull because it losses some metal due to the constant rubbing across on the surface of a medium and thus losing some atom in the process, that wear happens too, but it is something that 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
