Since I'll be getting a nice knife soon, I wanted to get a knife that I could use as a sharpening tool, to learn how to sharpen. I saw the term earlier called a "Beater," but not sure if that is just a knife you beat the crap out of using, or if it's a knife for something that I want? I'm assuming it covers a wide range of uses, as it seems to mean a cheap knife, for again, abusing.
Someone mentioned to me
So I'm not sure if I should just look for the knife he mentioned, or if someone else has a better recommendation?
At first I thought he mentioned the knife would cost 10$, but I don't see that anymore, so not sure where I read that.
I don't want to spend TOO MUCH on a cheap knife just for sharpening, but I guess, in the end, it might be useful to use on food, because how else will I know if I sharpened correctly, right (besides possibly looking at it, but I don't know at what level in the "learning stage" you learn to be able to understand an edge)....?
Thanks all :)
