Knives, like any other tool or machine, need to be maintained. If it isn't tuned up or in good working order, you're going to run into problems. That's why a sharp knife is a safe knife. Also, working with a sharp knife will allow you to get a cleaner cut and thinner, more precise, slices. At Culinary Apple, we often sell customers a manual knife sharpener for home maintenance, and these are great -- when they get used. Most people don't take the time required to keep their cutlery at peak sharpness. Or, they don't feel confident they are using the manual knife sharpeners correctly. This leads to consumers making due with dull, inefficient knives or with the feeling that their knives are wearing out too quickly.
