Why sharpen your knives?
Sharp knives cut through food easier which reduces damage to the food. Delicate ingredients such as fresh herbs will have less wilting and stay fresher, longer. Sharp knives are also safer. Dull blades can slip and cause injury. Sharp blades will not slip which makes them much easier to control. Keeping your blades honed and sharpened will also extend the life of the knives.
