Knife Accessories: Sharpeners and Storage
A sharp knife is a safe knife. To keep your knives in razor sharp condition, you’ll need a few essential cutlery accessories, such as:
Knife Sharpeners—The most dangerous knife is a dull one. Sharpening your cutlery regularly brings optimum precision and results, and lets the knife do the work with minimum force. The options of knife sharpeners range from sharpening steels and pull through options to electric sharpeners.
Knife Storage—Proper maintenance of the blades includes proper storage. We have magnetic knife holders to keep cutlery at hand and safely stored away. Our blocks are also a great option for proper storage. Other options include an in-drawer block, a dock which uses cork to keep cutlery apart, as well as a block filled with polypropylene rods.
