Keep the Edge With Professional Knife
Thereís an important reason businesses and homes alike
benefit from professional knife sharpening: Sharp blades are inherently safer.
A sharp blade makes slicing almost effortless. Since you donít have to force it
through the product, there is less risk the blade will slip and inflict an
injury. Plus, a sharp blade reduces repetitive motion injury, such as carpal
tunnel syndrome, because it slices on the first cut.
In addition to increasing safety, sharp blades enhance the look
and longevity of sliced food. Dull blades unnecessarily bruise delicate fruits
and vegetables during the cutting process, which reduces both their appearance
and shelf life. Sharp blades, on the other hand, produce a more appealing and
longer lived end product.
Even if all of your knives and other kitchen utensils are
sharp now, eventually they will need to be re-sharpened. The frequency for
re-sharpening depends on the quality of the blade, the way it is used, the type
of product being cut, and how well it is cared for, cleaned, and stored. When a
high-quality sharpening steel or honing device will not restore the bladeís
edge to a smooth cutting tool, professional knife sharpening is necessary.
During an improper sharpening, blades can be damaged by
excessive heating and abrasion. This reduces the strength, lifespan, and
appearance of the blade, as well as its overall cutting abilities. To maintain
the shape and balance of the knife, itís important to remove as little edge
material as possible during sharpening. All true knife sharpening techniques
physically remove some amount of material from the knife blade. But the expert
craftsmen at Diamond Sharp go to great lengths to keep that to a minimum and
restore each bladeís edge to optimal cutting ability and life span.
