    Hello,

    I'm willing to buy a 210 Gyuto Fujiwara FKM, they seem to be good for the price. 

    As i'm lazy and have no particular skill with stone, I wonder if we can sharpen 70/30 knife with hand sharpener like Chef's Choice or minosharp.

    I have tried wetstone on my cheap knives a few times, and it took me decades to get a cutting edge with a poor and unpredictable result.

    I read on another post that it might be alright to only use slightly the third stage of CC before using.

    So you guys what do you think about sharpening 70/30 bevel with those sharpener?

    Thanks !

    I don't know of a way where you won't more or less erase an asymmetric bevel with a pull through.

    I would add that i don't need razor cut.
    My feeling is that even with a wet stone it would end by destroying 70/30 bevel.

    You need to fix this part right away.  Then we can talk sharpening.

    OK you got me. I just bought a naniwa specialty stone 1000 and i'm gonna train sharpening on my Ikea chef's knife. Any advice to keep 70/30 with a stone?
