The most important tool in the kitchen is a super sharp knife. If you cook as often as I do, you need your knives sharpened at least once every 6 months. I get my knives sharpened at The Sword and Stone in Burbank. They make custom weaponry and armor for movies and serious collectors...and on Saturdays, are open to the public for knife sharpening!
Sword and Stone charges a very reasonable $4 per blade for sharpening, they do it while you wait, and as you wait, you can peruse their stunning collection of bitchin' armor and weaponry!
