We use a lot of knives in the field for harvest,
like most everyone. I am looking for a better way to keep knives
We use Stainless Produce Knives for cutting above
ground, and the Lightweight Field Knife from Johnnies for any cutting below
ground, like lettuce, cabbage, and fennel, as well as broccoli and other
above ground tasks.
For sharpening the Accusharp (white with blue
handle in different supply stores) works well to finish a knife, but it does not
take out nicks and really does not put an edge on a dull knife without a lot of
effort. So I generally need to get out the rough stone to sharpen the
knives. That often does not happen mid season. Are there any
electric sharpeners that work well? Or other ideas for sharpenning?
