Why you should buy a knife sharpener
As a matter of fact a sharp knife is safer than a dull knife. A sharp knife requires little force, so it's easier to control. A dull knife can slip off food and cut the user. The force needed to make a cut with a dull knife causes the user to lose control and cause injury.The user is more likely to treat a sharp knife carefully. You will also save money by sharpening all your knives yourself.
