A Cut Above
Sharpen your skills in the kitchen with the right tools of the trade.
While we know it’s more fun to buy than to fix, taking care of your cooking steel is an inexpensive way to improve your culinary skills (think: faster, better, stronger). Even better, razor-sharp knives sit second only to a hot barbeque when it comes to getting Dad up and at ‘em in the meal prep department. Summer is looking better already.
Knifewear is located in Inglewood and sharpens knives while you wait. Prices range from $6 to $15 and they repair broken knives for a small fee as well. The staff is knowledgeable, courteous and quick.
We were surprised to hear that a European knife (Henkel for example) should be sharpened three to four times per year depending on use. Japanese knives are made of a harder steel and need fewer trips to the whet stone (you can buy Japanese knives at their store).
