Last month I got the Edgepro Apex with the Chosera stones. They were back ordered on the 10k stone and that arrived yesterday. Because of the way things worked out last night I did not have a chance to try it out.

I sharpened the Hattori this morning working from the 1k, 3k, then 5k stones. I was anxious to get to the 10k but I wanted to be sure I was working on a good base. I worked the 10k and then tested in numerous ways to see how sharp the knife got. Crikey... this thing is sharp.

Paper? The lightest touch shreds it. Hair? It runs in front of the edge.

Tomato? Heh.. I could skin one with some patience.

This knife really is a joy to work with.

Make sure you wash it thoroughly before using it. I recommend tossing it into the dishwasher on the heavy duty cycle.
