Weekly one way or the other. I sharpen every other week and strop in between. This varies depending on use.

I work for a living and use my knives daily... I'm lucky to sharpen once a month. That doesn't go to say I'm not sharpening other peoples' knives.

About weekly. Sometimes I touch up the Sabs and other soft knives on the Sharpmaker while I'm working.

Yadda yadda I'm a philistine etc.

Professional cook here, I go through the full sharpening routine about once a week, on one of my days off. I strop throughout the week, probably 3-5 times depending on what I'm doing at work.

Sharpen every week or two. Strop or ceramic rod as needed.

Once they're not cutting how I like.

I try to keep 3 to 4 gyuto's sharp and rotate through them as needed so I don't have to do it every week, just on a day off every couple weeks.

I'm a home cook and I rotate between a few different Gyutos and a Santoku, but I sharpen as little as possible. Depending on the knife, I use an Idahone fine ceramic rod, a horse butt leather strop, a balsa strop loaded w/3 micron paste, or my Rika 5K stone for maintenance.
