Finally I could get my first Laser... I'm the proud owner of a Konosuke HD I picked the knife last week in Chicago, I was there on a business trip, after that I went to NY and finally after many days with the knife in my luggage I came back home and I could use the new toy.
I'm very impressed and I can tell you that the feeling of this knife is something that I've never felt before, it really falls thru veggies easier than cutting butter with a hot knife. All I can say is WOW ! But when I tried the knife on my forearm, I felt it somehow "gritty" while shaving, so, I know that the knife can do much better. Believe me, I can live with this kind of edge wich already exceeded my expectations, but since I'm a guy that likes to push the envelope, I'm thinking on sharpening it by myself while still is very sharp to get it scary sharp.
If the advice is to use it like it is now until it gets dull... I'm fine and I'll listen to your more experienced advice... But if there is no problem on get sharper a knife that is so new, my question is:
Being the knife this new and still very sharp, should I sharpen it until I get the burr starting with a medium grit stone (Bester 1200) or should I just polish it with a 6000-8000 ?
That's my question guys!
Once I get some hours with the new knife, I'll let you know my impressions as objective as I can. So far I'm very impressed with the fit, finish, balance and performance of the knife. Since I was out of town for many days, now I have a lot to do in the restaurant (More managing less cooking) and by the time that I can get in the kitchen to "cook", most of the prep is done already, but as soon as I get the chance of hitting sacs and cases of veggies by myself, I'll let you know how the knife performed on heavy duty use.
