Japanese knife sharpening stones
If you have a good knife you also need to know how to sharpen it. It takes some times to be able to sharpen the knife properly. I've been doing it with knowledge that I've leaned from the book.
According to the above book, professional shaper need three levels of stones. I've been sharpening with two stones for long time but I bought the last one #6000 for the first time. It cost about 5000 yen so it's not a cheap tool. I hope my knifes become sharper than ever with my practice.
