best affordable way to improve knife skills

njmac84 | Feb 16, 201509:28 AM     21

Hello! First time poster. I've recently (within the last 6-8 months) picked up cooking at home as a hobby and I'm looking to develop my skills a bit more. I already have a career that I'm happy with so I'm not trying to take this hobby any farther than making myself and my family/friends happy. I was hoping to get some recommendations on how to improve my knife skills. Is there a video series I could watch? Maybe a book of some kind? It takes me forever to get my prep work done and I know from observing others that my unrefined skills are holding me back in that department.

Thanks in advance for any replies!
