    Flat stone, so much better than an electric sharpener for those who still know how to use one.

    Just counted my kitchen knives…I have 19, plus 2 sharpening steels and a set of good steak knives. Go, Arlo!

    You bet! Mr. Johnson even got it right by putting a small can of oil for the whetstone, then finishing it off with a sharpening steel.

    Lordy, but this is The Squire! I make his wash his own knives. I have too many scars on my fingers from “not being careful” when I take them out of the dishwasher.

    I’m a Vegetarian. I have one small sharp knife that I keep in the back of a drawer when not in use. I fear anything sharp.

    Tell me it’s not so, Dani. One should never put a good cutting knife in a dishwasher but rather carefully wash and dry it by hand.

    Had to sharpen my knives this year. First time in two decades. They are very good knives.

    Unless you perform surgery with them; they are not sharp enough!!!
