Go to a department store or even somewhere like the new Sainsburys (Im sure we sell them there - we do everything else!)

Buy a knife sharpener, I know you said cheap but if you spend a bit more on one it will do a much better job and you'll be able to use it in the future anyway.

Go home.

Sharpen knives ;D

Depends on the knives.... high carbon are good and worth sharpening, cheap knives won't take or hold an edge....   either way sharpen and if they aren't great bang a good set on your wedding list.

Buy a good sharpening steel (which is best combined with a good knife or two). Or if you are friendly with a proper butcher or chef they may do it for you.

If the blade is blunt you'll have to get it back on a whetstone. Then to keep it sharp use a steel everytime you use the knife.
