    This reminds me of when Moriemoto got pissed at Flay for throwing his cutting board and treating his knives badly. When you get the knife you are learning the spirit of the knife. What us westerners would say getting to know it. In a sense you are kissing the knife when you first start sharpening it and making love with it when you are using it. This is my take on this not written in gospel.

    Gorgeous knife! I would be a bit scared to use it, so I would never buy it in the first place.

    I don't really feel like the knife is mine until I spend some time working it on the stones even if it did come fairly sharp ootb.

    My Takeda came very sharp but chipped when I sliced some bread. I would have rather finished the edge myself. It does not chip anymore.
