I just learned how to sharpen a knife and you should too!

Honestly, I am not sponsored by Tacklife in any way.  I just feel like you should be aware of all the amazing things they make and if I have an opinion on it you better believe you'll be seeing it here.

In the past I have used something like this little guy but I never felt like my knives got as sharp as they should.  I think it has to do with the fact that the blade takes a slightly different path each pass.

I have watched many chef's sharpen knives on TV but I have never seen one use those little travel sized gizmo's.  Honestly, I think there is a reason for that.  After dropping $30 I had a proper sharpening stone.  Now I will admit it I was a bit overwhelmed at first but honestly a couple YouTube videos and about 30 minutes later I felt comfortable sharpening my own knives.  I now have a Klein pocket knife that is far sharper than it was brand new from Home Depot!  It's much better for breaking in to all those Amazon boxes we all so love.

I wish I would have known …
