Knife Sharpener 

Hi Adrian!
Hope youare well. We watch your show with Janella & love it, also watch Secret Meat Business. I have seen you sharpening knives and would like your views on what is the best knife sharpener as I have just bought a lock set of Raco knives & would not like to dmage them.
Also, please let us know when you & Janella would be doing a show in Williamstown as we live round the area & ould love to meet you both.
Thanks & have a lovely day. Say Hi to Janella fos us please.

Hi Althea Thanks for taking the time to write & for the lovely feedback. Won't be filming in Williamstown unfortunately, Janella is no longer working on Good Chef Bad Chef, I have a new co host Zoe Bingley-Pulin, lovely lady. Re the knife sharpening, I use a steal (there are plenty of videos on you tube that will show you what to do), but have recently purchased a great knife sharpening device. From here Good Luck. Look forward to hearing how you go. Cheers A
