On the Thanksgiving checklist is to buy the turkey, turkey lifter, and turkey stock. Add one more item: get your knives sharpened. A dull knife is a dangerous knife, because the knife will slip while cutting slippery onions. A sharp knife is not only safe, the slices of turkey breast are beautifully straight and not shredded.

Kitchen Conservatory offers overnight knife sharpening every day and on Wednesday, November 26, bring all your knives in for while-you-wait knife sharpening between 9:30 am to 4 pm. The knives are sharpened on a water-cooled stone wheel at a 20-degree angle, $3 per knife. Then on Thanksgiving, have the sharpest knife in the drawer!
