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.
haha, it would seem I have, i must admit I was compeltely unprepared for all the detail, i was thinking ive these knives, im struggling with getting them sharp, ahhh a knife form, that'll do, how hard can it be... famous last words
