Master Sushi Chef Hiro Terada shows you how he sharpens his Kikuichi knife with a 1000 grit Masahiro whetstone, and then further polishes his knife with a Kikuichi 6000 grit wet stone.
Key things to remember are:
Soak the stone for at least 24 hours prior to sharpening; this assists the water lubrication to keep the knife from scratching against a harsh surface and damaging the blade.
Always use equal pressure throughout the blade at a 15 degree angle.
Always use the complete surface of the stone in order to keep the stone smooth and equally worn.
