Some of Misono knives are Semi-Double-Edged at 70/30 unsymmetrically.

A customer gave us a question about that.
“I’m very interested in purchasing a Misono UX10 gyuto.
My question is how difficult will it be for me to sharpen the 70/30 beveled edge? I have no experience hand-sharpening knives.
And if it’s better to have a professional do it, how do I locate a qualified one here in the United States?
thank you for your time.”



It is a kind of advanced question but very essential. 
The following was our answer, hoping it would be helpful for him.
———-
“First of all, there is no need to necessarily sharpen the UX10 70/30 by yourself if it was originally finished 70/30.
Because…the second half of the article below would explain about the issue.

And the followings would be helpful for better sharpening even in the U.S.,
