I would not count on it. Look it's a fish shop, chefs are not well known for there knife sharpening skills + look at the bevel and edge, it's not very even.

Do any Japanese flatten their stones?

Perhaps he is using a section of the stone each time, depending on the angle desired? Regular stones are too small for such a long knife. It calls for some body rocking motion. I wouldn't doubt his professional skill as each fish would be too expensive for him to mutialiate... In all probability he has a way/ technique to use a dished stone..

I am not so sure the stone is concave... look at the edge he is flattening the ura and the stone seems to be pretty flat to me, I think it looks that way because of the shape it has, I think it has a corner sticking out, or the picture could be warped, look at the guy behind his face seems to be warped. I don't think these guys would risk maiming a several thousand dllr fish with a bad edge and by the size of that knife we are probably talking about the huge ton or more tunas which go for hefty amounts.

Yeah the warping is the photo.

Insane photo!


Also +1 on chefs not knowing their arse from a hole in the ground about knives.
