Sharpening your kitchen knives can feel like a chore. You know they’re getting dull when they can’t cut through things with ease, but we tell ourselves that one more dinner won’t hurt, or that this weekend you’ll make the time (but you don’t, do you?). Well, I’m here to provide some inspiration.

An Instagram post from dewclaw_knives is getting a lot of attention because of the mesmerizing way the person cuts a potato. Sure, that might not sound like the most interesting thing, but trust me — you need to watch.

Dewclaw Knives is out of New Orleans and makes handmade custom knives that are currently putting all of mine to shame. Just check out this knife vs. freestanding tomato!

When was the last time your knife was sharp enough to make potatoes and tomatoes look like that? I can only speak from personal experience, and I can tell you right now that my knife is probably never that sharp. Time to get into the kitchen and change that!
