OK so - I've a sharpening question I've been sitting on for a while, unsure if it was safe to ask, but seems the coast (so far) is clear, so here goes.

During the recent(ish) prepartions for the Christmas dinner for six I found I was struggling somewhat, therefore hopefully one of you can help....

What angle and type of bevel - single or double - would you recommend for my old potato peeler?

I have been paying close attention to all this, and I think I know the answer: it doesn't matter what angle you use, but you MUST sharpen freehand, and it is very important to dip your hand on each stroke. And don't forget the pot of paint on the potato whilst you are peeling to hold it in place.
