Uses for Old Knives

Does anyone know the best way to dispose of Kitchen butcher knives. I have a lot of old knives that are no longer useful.

have you thought about using them in a garden as markers ? Paint the handles then the name of the plant !

That may be too dangerouse if you have kids who might pull them up & get hurt...

I'd wrap the blades in masking tape on the cutting edges, then put into cardboard that has been folded in half and tape closed - whether intended for the dump or donation.

Mark in large indelible black ink on the outside "sharp knife".

You don't want anyone visiting the dump to get cut.

I say this because where I live has a dump the size of a huge swimming pool and I have seen people going through it when we've dropped off trash.

I have used old knives for:

1. Taken steak knives to work for others to use

2. Letter/package openers

3. Scraping crud off of grill

1. I would check with the local highschool and see if maybe the Home-Ec dept. could use them. They could use their shop dept. to sharpen them.

2. A church

3. A woman's shelter
