    I don't do much special. I just take it in to work and use it, I never sharpen new knives, the OOTB edges are generally not very good but it still gives you an idea of how the knife cuts.

    I like to test out the ootb edge for a day prior to digging in on the stones.

    Only thing that I do is have some sandpaper ready to ease the spin/coil/tang if needed. Pack it in the roll and use the heck out of it the first day at work.

    After the first day of work, I have a good sense of how to approach the edge with stones and what I want out of the edge.
