Cringe-worthy video: Epicurious asks 50 people to sharpen a knife

bad sharpening

I am filing this under Sunday Funny, but just barely. To someone with just a basic knowledge of knives, enough that they themselves can do a fair approximation of sharpening a knife, it is probably funny. To a knife enthusiast, it is physically painful to watch. Not even Pakistani car-bumpers deserve this treatment. This is bad sharpening at its very worst.

 

Between clueless people almost severing their wrists, to the unholy grinding of steel upon stone, this is enough to bring even the hardest among us to tears.

    I watched one of these where they were asked to cut an onion. A woman with hipster Grey hair is streaming tears while cutting her onion with a butter knife. A Butter KNIFE!
