Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. Do not allow the blade to touch bone or frozen food. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of.
