I have a small sharpening business and I like to think I know what a sharp knife is. It was sharpened only on Japanese water stones. No sparkles, the stones are continuously impregnated and sprayed with water. That means no damaging of the original steel quality (like hardening). The last stone is an 8,000 grit which means mirror polish.
I have sharpened it manually on Japanese water stones (using a lot of water which means no sparks - in order to maintain the original blade properties - like hardening). Last stone 8000 grit - mirror finish, razor sharp.
I have a little sharpening business which means that the knife is properly sharpened - I like to believe. The Japanese water stones can be used only when they are wet and continuously sprayed with water. AT THE POST OFFICE YOU GOTTA PRODUCE AN I.
