SHARPNESS TESTING

With paper or "French fries"

To determine whether your knife is still sharp, we recommend the paper test at home. Simply take a piece of paper, hold it in the air in front of you and cut through the sheet with the knife and a bold movement. If the blade glides through effortlessly, the blade is still sharp. If not, you should sharpen it.
