I bought a knife some months ago for just this purpose. Didn't get round to 
buying a steel though.
Does anyone here know how to sharpen knives? Or how we find a suitable tutor 
for the Free Knife-In(tm)?
I have been shown but I wouldn't be able to reproduce the technique - I 
definitely need hands-on lessons
