How would I sharpen my Sujihiki 270mmm, would long strokes or the back and forth motion on each section of the knife? ​ am trying to decide what grit  to start with its right out of the box, used once on a turkey, cut really well, ​just wanting to know the technique in sharping a Sujihiki. before I put it to the stone.

Don't have a 270mm sujihiki, but I sharpen my 270mm gyuto the same as my shorter knives (more or less Jon's technique but I switch hands for the back side)

Instructive video, But I'm going to be sharpening on the Shapton glass stones, would it be the same, or would there be something different that I should go about on the glass stones?

Haven't used Shapton glass stones, but don't think it'd be different. They're still stones.

I meant to link to the whole playlist (which you can find through the URL pasted there). I recommend watching pretty much the whole series if you haven't already
