Learn to sharpen and maintain your kitchen knives using traditional Japanese whetstones

About this event

Are you harbouring a desire to be able to sharpen your own knives? Does it feel within your reach but still somehow completley unfathomable?

As a professional knife sharpening service we speak with our customers about this topic a lot, so much so we've lost count of how many times we've heard...

"I'd really like to be able to sharpen my own knives but I'm worried about ruining them"

"I've had a whetstone for years but I've never got round to learing how to use it"

"I'm not really sure about the angles"

..and these are absolutley valid reasons for being wary of getting started, properly sharpening a knife using traditional methods can be tricky, but by breaking down the process and giving you a little guidence along the way, we're confident you'll be leaving the workshop with the skills you need to sharpen and maintain your own kitchen knives.


How it will work

Participants will meet at 31 Leeds Road from 1845 on the day of the event, equipped with your own blunt kitchen knives. Ideally you will bring a chef knife and a paring knife but if you don't have these specifically then bring what you do have, this event is about teaching you how to care for your own knives with confidence, at home, so bring the knives you use.

The evening will begin with a short lesson in sharpening theory, followed by a demonstration and finally a chunk of time for you to sharpen your own knives with guidance from us.

 

What you will need

3-4 of your own kitchen knives for sharpening (preferably containing at least 1 large and 1 small knife. No serrated or single bevel knives this time please, if unsure please contact beforehand).

Enthusiasm for sharper knives .
