    new knife and edge pro

    Hi, I just ordered a new konosuke HD 210 petty and edge pro apex5 w/chosera. Up till now I have used globals with a pull through ceramic wheel sharpener. My question is what advice on doing to the new konosuke with the edge pro before bringing the knife to work?

    I'd say it depends on what kind of edge you like to use. They come with a nice edge already from what I've seen and I've seen a fair number.

    Cool that's good. I'm not sure what edge I "like" I'm used to the global 50/50 but always want to learn pros of other options, I work a 12 hour shift most days and need my edge to last without much attention.

    Aside from the 50/50 ratio, how do you sharpen your global?

    I use a minosharp pull through ceramic water sharpener, so a 15*? although I get great results I thought it was time to graduate to a better system.

    I used one of those Minosharp wheel sharpeners a long time ago and if I had to guess I'd say it gave me an edge that was about 10% of the knife's potential. The EP should give you an edge that's infinitely better than that

    That's great, people already scared of my knives sharpness but I knew they had more in them. Any advice on what angle and stone to go at the edge pro with my already sharp globals, and my OOTB konosuke HD?

    Nothing is written in stone but I'd say the Konosuke should take 10 degrees, the Global you would probably have to go a bit higher. Depends on how you use the knives and all that I guess

    I would see How you like the stock edge before you make any changes. My konosuke came with a very nice edge.

    I should ask this, can I use the edge pro to keep the stock edge super sharp?
