Wouldn’t it be nice to have a perfectly sharp knife appear on your doorstep every few months? And yes, that also sounds like a premise for a bad horror movie, but this is different, I promise.

Experienced cooks know how important a sharp knife is to culinary success. Dull knives waste time and cause injuries (not to mention unsightly crudités). I always thought I’d love a knife that never needs sharpening — and now I’ve found one.

Kind of.

I tried out the EVR Sharp (get it?) kitchen knife subscription service, and so far, my 7-inch EVR Sharp knife has absolutely maximized my cooking joy, as promised. Every three months they send a perfectly sharpened chef’s knife –one that can be used for just about anything — to my door. After three months, a new knife arrives with a box and shipping label to return the old one. You won’t go a single day without a sharp knife.

As for the cost, the service bills you $24 every three months. So while $100 a year is more expensive than investing in a knife sharpener, for those of us who want to avoid the chore of sharpening (or hauling our knives out to a pro every few months), I think it’s a great investment for avid home cooks who will always have a perfect knife at the ready.

Turns out, I didn’t know it, but this was always the dream — a hassle-free way to guarantee a sharp knife in my stash that gets most jobs done. Although I occasionally use my filet knife or a paring knife, this 7″ Japanese chef’s knife has definitely turned into the most useful one in my kitchen.
