How to tell if you knife needs sharpening
If you think your knife is getting dull, look down the cutting edge in the sun and see if you can reflect light off the very edge. If you see any spots that shimmer in the light, you probably have a burr. A burr is an inconsistency in the edge. This is what makes a knife dull.
