Hi I just bought your fujiwara carbon guyoto. I was wondering what the angles are on the blade and the best way to sharpen it. Do I just sharpen one side or 20 degrees one side , five degrees the other. Sorry for the dumb questions , it's my first carbon? Any other tips for patina or washing it right out of the box will help. Haven't touched it , just looked at it ! Thanks Jason

Hi Jason,

You don't have to worry about it. I usually sharpen all of my knives 15 degrees on both sides. If you want to copy the edge on the knife and approximate the factory grind, mark the edge with a sharpie and then sharpen to remove the entire mark.

For patina you can just use the knife and let it happen. Just make sure to dry the knife after using and washing it. If you want to hurry up the process you can force a patina on the knife I did a video on it and it's easy.

I sharpened mine right out of the box around 15 deg, gets extremely sharp. Great knife for a first carbon
