    There are diff. ways to sharpen scallop edges.I use slip stones same as for wood chisels.Easy to find stones wt. thin rounded edge.Look at it this way you got experience sharpening it & the fact that it burrs easy to me can indicate that the steel is of good quality.

    It's kind of long, as it's a review of the stone, but the last part of it is a tutorial on sharpening the Tujiro ITK bread knife.
    So confused...

    Ha! Seems I broke a rule of some sort? Maybe if I link directly to the video instead of to the store page where it was embedded? I'm pretty sure the video itself is entirely non-commercial, so hopefully the censors won't mind.

    mdnef sorry to say, but any video he makes is sales. You just got in the middle of some bad juju. Altho there is a few of his in the you tube idiots section.
    Chewie's the man.

    I think it's in the Knowledge section but it doesn't cover this type of serration though.

    FWIW, I just use the corner of a stone. Pick the angle and roll the corner through the scallops. I go from heal to tip and then back to the heal again and repeat until a burr is formed. Now the confusing part is deburring, I chose a buffing wheel since that works great but obviously most people don't have this so traditional methods have to be used. Felt pads are pretty good here, use the back side (where the burr is seen) and strop hard at an increased angle (5deg? or so) and then cut in felt too if possible. There's also a method pro sharpeners use (myself included) for stubborn burrs - a wire brush used at 90deg across the edge.
