Hello Foodie Friends. Father’s Day is just around the corner. Buying for Dad can be difficult, especially when he has almost “everything,” especially enough ties! Among the very “cool” gifts we have at Compliments to the Chef for Dad is the Brod & Taylor knife sharpener. This is a fantastic gift to give to the culinary aficionado – especially the one that loves to cook with quality, sharp knives. Did you know that a sharp knife leads to fewer injuries? It does sound contradictory that a sharp knife could cause less injury. However, a sharp knife means you make fewer cuts and do not have to work as hard as you would to cut when using a dull knife. The law of averages shows that there is less of a chance of cutting yourself with a sharp knife then with a dull knife. A sharp knife also cuts more precisely with less chance of slippage. Overall; a sharp knife promotes better cutting techniques. Brod & Taylor make a professional knife sharpener that can quickly sharpen and hone any knife – even serrated knives. It is made of precision Austrian tungsten carbide with a “V” shape cutting edge that hones without removing metal. The spring action bars adjust to different blade angles. This sharpener can last over five years with home use. If Dad already has a sharpening system, you may want to consider adding the Brod & Taylor knife sharpener. At Compliments to the Chef located at 46 Marion Avenue in Saratoga Springs, we carry Brod & Taylor knife sharpeners. As the owner of the store and an expert at knife sharpening, I personally love this sharpener! Stop by Saratoga Springs’ true kitchen essentials store to talk to me about fun and different gifts for Dad. Cooking with Dad in the kitchen can create memories and skills to last a lifetime. Remember; “Life Happens in the Kitchen.” Take care. John and Paula
