    Sharpening Global Knives

    I am just going to give it another go with the tools that I have here and see how it goes, I am not expecting perfection, just need them to cut meat and veg realtively easily but if it all goes wrong then ill get them sharpened somewhere.

    Sharpening Global Knives

    Lessons learnt I guess, I have them now so just need to make to most of them, dont think I could sell them, they have some marks on them although in realtively good condition, not chips or damage to the cutting edge from what i can tell. They have not been mistreated.
