I am at a home kitchen and I am a complete noob in knives and sharpening. Because of coronavirus confinement and in order to do something useful I decided to sharpen my knives. I did not realized that I will open a can of worms. First, I failed and could not help myself without extra help and found this fantastic forum! My big surprice was how nice and smart members are here! I expected Harley-Davidson type of folks but I found very thoughtful, friendly and highly knowledgeable community with clear respect to scientific method and intellectual approach to the world. `Then a bought a cheap knife and it was so sharp and working with it was so big pleasure that I realized that I can not live with dull knives any more! I want them be all that sharp and that cheap Chinese knife (BTW, a week later it is already not as sharp!!!). Then it appears that there are so many things I need to learn that I found that I spent hundreds of hours of watching YT, browsing the web and reading this forums! About infrequent honing. I know that soon epidemic will be over and I will not have time because of my business to visit this forum often and sharpen my knives often as well. So, until I still have some spare time for research I would like to develop a system that with REGULAR LOW MAINTENANCE I would never need to sharpen knives again. My current plan is to hone on a ceramic rod every time before cooking (and I like cooking and often do it three times per day). Unfortunately, I found that honing is not sufficient and I also need to strop on a leather strop. The leather strop does not pass my standards of hygiene to be on a kitchen (ceramic rods seems OK even with trace amount of cobalt ) so I am still contemplating on the best way to handle it. The reason to come to this unorthodox system is simple: I am a very lazy person on the one hand and I love very sharp knives. At this moment I am thinking that may be Boker Ruby rod may be a solution to my honing needs since from what I found so far that is seems to be the best rod for honing? An ideal solution is to keep all my knives sharp including my new beautiful M390 chef with one and only one tool in the kitchen if. of course, it is possible. Under any circumstances, I know that I will find eventually a way to keep my knives sharp spending on this very reasonable amount of efforts.
