A Sharper Image

I'm reminded by a post from Rowley's Whiskey Forge of the annual sharpening of the knives. What I didn't know until a couple years ago was that knives should be sharpened annually. While using a steel each time the knives come out helps keep them aligned, it doesn't actually sharpen it. While most hardware stores will do it for you, it's easy enough to buy a sharpener and do it at home. I use this one. It's also important to actually remember to do it! Rowley apparently does his knives every holiday season; I do mine around Thanksgiving. So if you haven't done it yet, go sharpen your knives! It's not to late to use Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday as your mnemonic device, just try not to think about any potential symbolism.
