Check out the list below to learn how, and be sure to leave your own knife-sharpening tips in the comments!

2. Broken Glass Bottle
Any glass edge will work for this one! Hold your knife at a slight angle against the edge of your broken glass, then wipe it in the same direction a few times. It’s surprisingly easy and a great way to sharpen a knife quickly.
3. Slate or Cement
This is a great option if you’re outdoors and have access to slate or concrete. Find a flat surface and wipe your blade back and forth a few times. Try this survival skill the next time you’re camping!
