You can make your knives very sharp by yourself from day one
Knife Sharpening Class
All knives go dull eventually
Even expensive knives made of quality steel for high edge retention go dull in a matter of months. Knives made of soft steel can go dull in as quickly as 10 mins of good use in commercial environments. Whatever your knives are, you need to maintain the sharp edge to do what they are meant to do.
Maintenance Cycle: Touch up, Sharpening, and Thinning
A touch up is a very quick and easy way to restore only the very apex without removing much steel and is usually done multiple times before sharpening. Sharpening removes enough steel to create a new edge. Thinning makes the blade thin again after multiple sharpening sessions. Please read Maintenance Cycle for details.

What does a sharpening mean?
By our definition, sharpening is a process of removing a sufficient amount of steel from the secondary bevel and re-establishing an edge. Generally speaking, a knife should only take a few minutes to up to about 15 min to sharpen on whetstones, depending on the condition, blade length, objectives, and material.
This three-and-a-half-hour class aims to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to produce excellent results at the sharpening bench. The first one-and-a-half hours covers theory and the remaining time teaches you practical skills with a short break in between. Half an hour is available for questions and discussion.
