Knife help - what to do? Henckel Inernational Everedge

fldhkybnva | Oct 9, 2012 07:41 PM

I have noticed recently that my knives are pretty much useless. Not only the chef's knife, but the steak knives as well. I have the following set It's the Henckel International Everedge Set bought when I was in college. The knives have never been sharpened ever (longer than I would like to admit but 8+ years) and so I thought perhaps they needed to be sharpened. My google search to figure out the best way to do this yielded a lot of helpful information to suggest that these serrated knives in general are not very good nor do they last very long. Would you recommend that I try to sharpen them? Is it possible to sharpen serrated knives and how so? I can't really afford a very nice, long lasting knife set right now but would like to have knives that actually work (for example, meat both raw and cooked tends to accumulate on the blade such that during prep or eating I usually have to pull off a strand of accumulated meat, which I assume is a bad sign of knife effectiveness
