If you think your knives are sharp, but aren't completely sure, here's a simple test you can do to find out. Just hold a sheet of paper away from you and try slicing simple vertical strips. If the knife doesn't cut the paper, or snags as it slices through, then it's time to take them to the knife sharpener! Tip: Some grocery stores (including several large chains, depending on the location) and kitchenware stores offer free knife sharpening.
