A dab hand at the waterstone

I have this knife, which arrived with a beautiful sharp edge. I was worried about what I would do when the edge lost its keenness—it didn’t seem the sort of knife (or edge) that would be compatible with my Chef’s Choice knife sharpener, or any other sharpener that I had. Fortunately, I had bought this Chinese knife, which arrived with a rather dull edge, which I managed to sharpen. That somewhat lengthy effort honed my skills as well as the edge, and so when I decided yesterday that the Tosagata Hocho 6″ Santoku Hocho was  not cutting quite so well as it had been, it took very little time at the waterstone to restore its edge to perfection. It was satisfying beyond merely getting a good edge again.
