Thread: Sharpening a Nakiri

    Make sure the knife is straight, your stones are flat and hope the peaks & valleys aren’t too extensive. I like to mark the area ( ½ inch or so up from - to the edge) with a sharpie, so I know what’s going on. Try not to remove any more metal than necessary, just enough to create a even bevel and take out any gaps along the edge. A jig system or powered something would make it easier, but it wouldn't be as fun as freehanding against a rock.

    If you run it so that the edge is in line with the belt it will fix up that wavy edge - I have used this technique on several knives which had been 'over-steeled' to the stage that they were starting to look like kukris. Just make sure the blade doesn't heat up
