Sharpening a santoku

im_nomad | Feb 10, 2008 09:15 AM

Please help a naive knife owner !

Admittedly I don't own an expensive set of knives, nor do i own a stone. My favorite chopper is my cuisinart santoku knife, which is getting dull (probably because i'm constantly using it), it also seems to be sticking a bit more.......... I didn't pay a whole lot for it, but i really like this knife because it's smaller and works great for me. That being said, i don't really know how to sharpen it. The only "tool" i have it a built in sharpener thing that's on a knife block i own, one of those indents that you just drag the knife through.

I don't want to ruin my it ok to use the built in sharpener or will it mess up the indents?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
