It sounds strange, but using a blunt knife for meal prep is dangerous. A sharp knife edge will glide through the surface of the item you are cutting, making it precise and effortless. A dull knife requires more pressure, and has a higher chance of slipping, so when that happens with the extra force you are applying, look out fingers! Ouch! We highly recommend making a commitment to sharpening your knives, which is why we have a range of easy-to-use knife sharpeners available. At the moment we have a special deal when you purchase a selection of knife blocks, that you receive a free sharpener as our gift to you.
