    i'm not saying 10 degrees inclusive is a good idea, but take this for what its worth... i have more than 1 knife with 8-10 degrees inclusive edges that i really do use for food and on cutting boards... its certainly not a good idea for everything or for everyone, but its hardly impossible

    aside from that, i'm staying out of this one

    How can I measure angle with free hand sharpening?
    I have no idea what angles I'm sharpening… guestimating at something around 12-15˚

    He seems very knowledgable in some aspects and rather ignorant in others. For instants not all honesuki's are chisel ground some are just very asymmetrical and 10 degrees does seem steep for a gyuto. How ever he is right in stating that this is besides the point. If it is a poorly done heat treatment then it isn't going to be a good knife. Like he said it is what it is. I tend to take reviews with a grain of salt from people who us wicked edge and other jigs though.

    its hard to measure while sharpening, but you can use an iphone with an angle finder app to see what angles look like easily (there are android apps too)

    I served 300 people "damberguerres" that friends brought down from Canada for a huge lobster bake party we did up in Vermont. I kept asking where they got all the ground beef. They refused to tell me til we were all lit. Then they just impersonated a horse.
