Knives can be one of the most intimidating things in the kitchen. From knowing which knives you need, to which knife is right for each cutting job, to how to sharpen your knives, there’s a lot to learn.

Luckily, this easy trick will help you keep your blade at its sharpest. When you’re scraping cut veggies off of your cutting board into a pot, pan, or salad bowl, simply flip your knife over and scrape with the blunt edge instead of with the blade. This will keep your knife from going dull.
