Did you know that the single most important tool in your kitchen is a good knife? Or that you’re less likely to cut yourself with a sharp, well taken care of knife, than a dull, worn out one?

Chef Brad, America’s Grain Guy, is back to show you why you need a good quality knife in your kitchen, as well as all the steps to take care of that knife once you purchase it. Chef Brad takes you through some of the most essential knives any kitchen can’t be without, including the classic Wüsthof Chef Knife, the versatile Wüsthof Double Serrated Bread Knife, the much used Wüsthof Paring Knife, and the most popular knife in America, the impressive Wüsthof Santoku Knife. He’ll also show you the proper way to clean and store your knives, explain the difference between a Honing Rod and Sharpening Rod, and demonstrate the simple and easy steps to sharpening your knives!

Watch the video above and see for yourself. Just as Chef Brad says, “If you take proper care, you’ll have a knife that will last you a lifetime.”
