Look sharp Costco friends, 158 sales are on the go!
Also look sharp because I bought a Sabatier knife sharpener today, and gave all the “beauties” a good 20 times over. And so far they are lookin’ & cuttin’ good!
Has anyone used this kind before? (I’ve always just used a steel, but figured it’d be a good time to try a new one)
It’s got a 3 stage system depending on how dull your blade is, so some of the knives needed the full 3 steps… Not all of them, but some were well overdue for a deep sharpening!
Anyone out there have any knife sharpening tools you’re fond of that you’d like to share???
This was pretty straightforward to use, and the results seemed to be pretty straightforward as well. Just line up the heel of the knife, apply light pressure and pull the knife through.
Now if you’re using Japanese or European knives there will be a difference in blade angle so… You may need a sharpener that’s specific OR there are some that handle both styles.
Right now we only have Henckel knives so this is fine. But one day I will own some sweet, beautiful Japanese steel… I’ve used a Japanese chef knife once, and it was amazing. It was over a year ago so I don’t remember the exact reasons but weight, and the angle of the blade made it feel that much sharper and more accurate. I just remember that the limes cut like butter, and I’ll take that any day. (plus some of them are absolutely gorgeous!)
Hard to beat those sales, unlike the heat… Thankfully it finally broke thanks to a bunch of rain over the last few days.
In the mean time (despite the rain, which you can see on the grill) we’ve done most of our cooking outside on the new grill, which is working amazing!
Last night was potatoes, grilled veggies & marinated chicken thighs brushed with Diana sauce, or “secret sauce” as my Uncle Bill would call it. I loved grilling with Uncle Bill when I was a kid!
We also had a few more BIG ‘OL moth friends arrive and say hello, I’m assuming they wanted to come in and chill out for a bit.
I think this is a good stopping point. It was a busy and hot weekend, and we’re beat… So, I guess I’ll see you soon folks!
Thank you as always for the comments and the continued support!!!
As we are all getting back to normal (and heading into phase 3, YIKES!!!) I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.
