According to Southern Living, it depends on how often you use your kitchen knives.

If you’re in the kitchen a lot coming up with dishes, you should sharpen them every two weeks. But if you aren’t using them very much, you can go longer than that. Knives that are used a lot wear down faster and they need more regular maintenance.

If you’re not sure how sharp your knife is, try to cut a piece of paper with it. If your knife doesn’t cut through the paper, it needs to be sharpened.

A dull blade not only makes slicing and dicing more difficult, it can lead to more accidents and nicks and cuts in the kitchen.

Buy yourself a quality honing rod and use it every couple of weeks to keep your knives in great shape.

Good luck in the kitchen, friends!
