      Uh oh - that’s a hint that she wants you to be a contestant on Top Chef.

        I’m gonna start with not cutting fingers off

      Great lookin' knives. I'm not 100% sure, but those knives are zirconium dioxide and are almost as hard as diamonds. Please make sure you have the correct sharpeners.

        1000 grit and 3000 grit stones only ..... the Edge Pro system comes with both, fortunately.

      You'll really like the Edge Pro once you get over the learning curve. I suggest watching You Tube videos and getting an old carbon steel knife at a second hand shop or eBay and practicing on it. I got a set of 'Old Hickory' and I get them so sharp I don't even bother thinking about getting any others. Things to focus on, primary edge, secondary edge, and thinning the blade. I wound up getting an angle cube so I can set my edges perfectly every time.

        Primary edge? Secondary edge? Wow, I have so much to learn. Here's what I do: knife not sharp, make knife sharper than it was, happy.

      Did you get their whetstone? I think these knives are made in the traditional Japanese style; only one side is sharpened.

        According to the Edge Pro folks, you can sharpen Kamikoto knives with their stones.

        Sounds like your all set. Enjoy. They are beautiful.

        Bkhuna I just told my wife that they are so beautiful I’m scared to use them. I know all about my Wusthof knives, but this is a whole different level.

          Edge Pro has a couple of videos that will help shorten the learning curve. I’ve had mine for a few years and have been extremely pleased with their performance. Keep the stones clean and wet during use.
          I would recommend putting blue painters paint on the blade body to prevent the slurry from scratching the surface as you move the knife back and forth along the support. I neglected to do so when sharpening my Chefs knife and it irritates me that I neglected to do so.
          Congratulations on a great gift!

            Thanks for the tips! I was wondering how to protect the beautiful blades on these knives, now I know. :-)

          Nice. I have the Edge Pro myself. The blue tape and a black sharpie are two essentials for using the system.

            Those just “look” badass! Great job by your wife. How long are they supposed to hold up between sharpenings?
