New Article for Knifeplanet - Is Sharpening harmful and steps to stay sharp


I had a similar post up earlier but Knifeplanet wanted to run with it so I had to take it down but now I can share the link.

What prompted me to write the article was something I read where the author used terms that make it sound like sharpening a knife as opposed to continuously honing a knife is harmful to the knife.

I was all over that incorrect statement so here it is.


The only harm I have seen to a knife is from sharpening on a grinder or similar machine and also, over steeling.  Some folks have a nasty habit of steeling a knife for a period of time and when the positive effect of steeling is gone, as happens, the person just applied more pressure.

Thanks for reading
