knife abuse

arugala | Mar 30, 2008 04:32 PM

I just got my first chef knife, an 8" Wusthof Blackwood Ikon. Ive been hearing different things about caring for these knifes correctly- Aside from proper storage, and not dropping it, anything a new knife owner may not know will damage a knife?

Also, how often should I sharpen? Should I leave it to professionals?
