Galveston Chefs, you deserve better! Here’s a comparison to help you choose between a local sharpener and a big box knife leasing / exchange service.

In lieu of a local professional sharpener, “Knife Leasing” (often called knife exchange programs) offers restaurants, butchers etc. a simple solution to keeping usable cutlery in their kitchen inventory, for a set fee service agreement.

Local professional sharpeners have, for the most part, gone the way of the Milk Man. Until now.  Island Edge Sharpening brings Galveston County flexible, personalized sharpening directly to your kitchen at prices below the big knife leasing companies.

 

Let’s do a little comparison shopping between the Local Sharpener and the big box knife leasing company.

Care for your Knives

Now that Island Edge Sharpening has restored your knife edges “New” and tested to Brubacher Edge Sharpness Scale.   

 

  • Hand wash and dry.  Do not put in dishwasher. The hot water can swell and shrink handles eventually causing them to get loose and your dishwasher doesn’t need a bunch of micro scratches in the plastic baskets. 

  • Keep knives in butcher block or sheath, do not leave them “freestyle” banging around in a drawer etc. 

  • Use Plastic or wood cutting boards only.  No glass. 

  • When scraping those diced onions off the cutting board into the pot use the spine of the knife, not the beveled edge.  (My biggest faux pas). 

  • Use the right tool for the job.  If you’re a fan of Japanese style knives consider a cleaver for the “heavy” work (cartilage, bone etc.) every household in Japan has at least one cleaver. 

  • Before you throw that knife with the broken tip, chips, loose handles or cracks check with a sharpener. Often these knives can be repaired or repurposed. For example, a 8”chef knife with a broken tip can be re-profiled into a 7-1/2” chef knife.
