    My technique is always something along the lines of suspect It has been many years since I've tried to sharpen an old/cheap super flexible filet knife and that was on a small/crappy oilstone, hopefully the technique is slightly improved since those days and quality of stones has definitely improved tremendously.

    For the record, EVERY knife flexes. The question is how much and if you feel it while you work with it.

    I couldn't agree more. Flexible blades I haited a few years ago don't bother me
    now anymore. That being said, the best sharpening result are still with stiffer blades. I'm not happy with blades that offer more flex than a Misono Swedish Carbon.

    I don't know too many gyutos that are significantly more flexible with regard to sharpening than the Misono carbon. What blades are you refering to?

    Sorry, I didn't specificly referred to gyutos. To me it's just the max in flex. If you deal with e.g. filet blades with less height the flex makes the sharpening uncertain.
