Whetstone. Even a cheap one for around £20 seems to be able to get even cheapo knives lol-worthyly sharp. Nothing worse than preparing your dinner with blunt shit. Nothing better than slicing your tomatoes ludicrouslly thin.
ooh tell me more
better than using a steel?
YES finally someone with some sense
what a pair of clowns here.
I have been mashing potatoes with the skin on for ages now
would have been finished ages ago if you had bothered to peel them
i knew you were going to make this joke
My understanding is that a steel hones an already sharp knife, but the whetstone actually removes material from the edge of a blade so you can turn a cheap tesco knife into a razor if you’re willing to put the effort into sanding the edge to a point. Someone can probably google the technical terms.
Finally got a garlic crusher couple of months ago. No more mincing garlic using a knife like a grade A chump
*waits for the ‘marckee is replying’ notification*
that doesn’t make it right, now.
I did my lower back about 20 years ago and was in and out of physio for ages. It would flare up at least once a year and required several sessions of physio each time. I found that basic ab and core strengthening makes a real difference. I haven’t needed physio for about 5 years now.
Start by lying flat and pulling my knee to my chin, ‘hugging’ my calf and pulling it into my chest to stretch my glute (3 each side)
I then raise my bum off the floor and push up into an arch (repeat 10 times)
Then I do:
flutter kicks (60)
knees to chest (30)
Finish up with a basic plank held for 90secs
A traditional smooth honing steel is of no use if the edge is blunt, because it removes no material; instead it fixes deformations along the edge of a sharp blade , technically known as burnishing.
A steel doesn’t sharpen at all! mindblown. It just realigns the edge.
But to hell with all that, the best sharpeners are these type of things:
Drag the knife through each side five or ten times, then go fuck up some salad.
Here he is!
Those sharpeners are alright if you dont mind being laughed at as a noob by proper sharpenhedz.
The hedz can gtf or I will CUT THEM
And myself, as I’m deseeding a tomato
I keep thinking of doing this, but i get stuck at work enough as it is. I’d struggle trying to get away and work more.
