Do you want to know how to sharpen your knives yourself? Do you want to feel the satisfaction of slicing a tomato with a freshly sharpened blade?

This 3 hour workshop, led by Erik, knife and sharpening enthusiast, will allow you to acquire all the necessary skills to practice at home and give your knives an exceptional sharp edge.

We will cover different sharpening techniques such as:

– How to give the right angle to the blade on a stone,
– How to get the right movement and pressure,
– Why and how to create a morfil and how to make it disappear,
– When to change the stone and how to maintain it,
– How to polish your blade.

The practice will be framed by theoretical explanations: you will learn more about the types of steel and the types of stone. You will learn to recognize what a carbon knife is compared to a stainless steel knife. You will also understand why some blades are more difficult to sharpen than others.

Skill requirements: none, this workshop is ideal for beginners.

You can bring 2 to 3 knives of different types and 1 to 2 pairs of scissors.

The price includes all the tools needed to practice and a mountain of good advice.
