I've been very busy in our photo centre so I've only used the nakiri my new Masakage Koishi Nakiri a few times. I was almost afraid of it at first but we're becoming good friends! It is awesome to handle and as sharp as promised.
Do you recommend the Idahone ceramic rod for it? I use a Spyderco Sharpmaster? for sharpening but think I need a ceramic as well.
Have a great new year,
Herb

Hi Herb,

Yes the Idahone will work well for your knife. I'm really happy you're enjoying it!

Herb - I've used the fine ceramic on my Masakage Yuki with great results. You'll need proper technique, which really means using very light pressure on the rod - no banging like butchers do :-). It usually only takes a few strokes per side to perk the Yuki right back up!

Check out my video on the product page that Mark gave - it's not the only way, just a way that works for me.

I have a 12" Idahone Fine and it works real well for touch ups. You need to start thinking about a set of water stones for sharpening and ditch the Spyderco.
