About the Sharpening

Knives will be sharpened by hand with natural oil stones. Two coarse stones are used to reshape the edge. Three Arkansas stones refine the edge. The knives will be cleaned with alcohol before being carefully wrapped.

Why oil stones?  This is how I sharpen my tools a few days a week!  The steel used in my tools (and my kitchen knives) is prone to rust.  Using oil instead of water makes rust proofing much easier!

Why Arkansas stones?  I’m a sucker for tradition, using natural materials, and buying local.  These Arkansas stones were cut out of mines in Arkansas, and last much longer than man-made stones.

Why by hand?  All my work is done using hand tools only (unplugged).
