Sharpening a Serrated Knife

Is sharpening a serrated knife worthwhile?

People may tell you that sharpening your serrated knives isn't necessary. To some, sharp kitchen utensils may not be a priority (I assume you, a sharpening site visitor, are different), but it does make a difference. Most people who avoid sharpening their serrated knives simply abstain because they don't know how to do it. It's perfectly rational for someone to keep cutting with a dull bread knife when sharpening it seems like an impossibility. Rest assured, though. Sharpening your serrated knives can be very quick and easy if you have the right tool.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
