    Specifically, it is to put the proper working edge on a new knife.

    it translates roughly to putting the real edge or final edge on the knife... it is the final sharpening of the knife preparing it for use for the first time. Many japanese craftsmen intentionally do not do this, so that the customer can put his or her own edge on the knife (as personal preference has a large part to do with it). However, some, upon request, will do so. More often, however, retail stores will offer this for customers in japan. We do the same here.
