Hi, couple of quick questions. I am a home cook and currently have a 240 Mac Pro, I use a trizor chef choice machine for sharpening. Recently I have been interested in trying a lighter handled wa gyuto and came across your new artifex line. As far as the steel goes would it respond well to the chef choice machine? Is there anything else I should know about this knife? It seems like a perfect solution as I didn't want to spend a great deal on my first wa handled knife.

Thanks Chris

Hi Chris,

The short answer is yes it will work with your sharpener.

However I highly recommend you learn to sharpen on stones. It's easy and fun, and you get much better results. We sold the chef's choice machines for many years and they work but the edge they produce is average at best.

Mark, thanks for your quick reply. Sharpening was actually one of the reasons I was considering this knife. I didn't want to spend too much on a knife with which to learn sharpening. Would you recommend 2 stones to start? Any suggestions on which ones? Some additional info about me, my time is very limited with 2 little ones at home so I would prefer an option where stones could be left in water or have minimal soak time. Thanks again for your help

If money isn't a great concern, start with 2 stones.....a 1,000 and a 4 to 6,000.

I perma-soak this stone and it's great:

and a stone like this you soak while you're using your 1,000 grit stone and it'll be good to go when you're ready:

Of course, you can get this set, which is nice to have:

This is a good set that works well together and are splash-n-go. A good way to get started.
