    Yes I did. I've already nicked myself with it too lol.

    That's great - I mean having chosen the Korin sharpening...
    The Misonos come OOTB with a nice but overly convexed edge which is hard to reproduce. That's much easier with Korin's waterstone edge. You won't have to set bevels with a coarse stone, you may just restore the existing edge.

    It's been said around here that you don't truly own a knife 'till its tasted your blood.

    So... Congratulations!

    Ahhhh sharpening. I think I may go buy a cheap $10 knife to practice on before I attempt it on a $130 one. I think I'd cry if I messed it up. I just had to replace my brand new cutting board because I accidentally left it outside too long and it warped and split. That was painful as they are not cheap so I definitely don't want to mess the knife up too lol.

    Sharpening is nothing to be afraid of, it's supposed to be fun.
    Generations of men have sharpened their razors and tools. It can't be that difficult.
    As long as you don't use powered equipment, you may undo everything you do. It's very, very hard to definitively ruin a blade.
    Get yourself a cheap practice knife, but get one made of carbon steel. Cheap stainless is often made of inferior stuff that just won't take any edge.
    Carbon steel is very easy to get the basics with: thinning, raising a burr, chasing it, deburring.

    Inexpensive carbon can be found here.

    Good thinking.
    If you truly screw up though, you can have it sent to me, and I can hone it for you for the cost of shipping. (I'm sure many honers here would do the same.)
