How to keep your knives sharp

How to keep your knives sharp. Master Batcher Viv Harvey talks us through how he keeps his knives as sharp as possible at all times. Viv explains that keeping a knife sharp is safer than working with a blunt knife, where you tend to apply much more pressure, with added pressure often meaning slips and cuts.

Viv talks us through his process of keeping both his boning knife and his meat knife fully sharp, using a fine steel. Viv highlights the safety aspects involved with sharpening a knife to ensure that you reduce the risk of cuts and injuries. He demonstrates the best angle to sharpen the knives, and where to correctly place your hands.
