Care of knife :
1. Sharpening Steel Rod not recommended.
2. Don't cut Frozen Foods with these knives.
3. A whetstone is the best surface for maintaining a Japanese knife. There are various combinations of whetstones that may be used for sharpening a Japanese knife. The most common procedure starts with a whetstone #1000 grit to roughly arrange the angle of the edge to your preference, and then switching to a finishing stone (#3000 - #10,000 grit). By using multiple whetstones, the blade edge can be nicely maintained with less force to a varying degree of sharpness and refinement. Lastly, using a whetstone takes off far less steel than using a honing rod. Taking off less steel means a longer lasting knife.
