First, make a blade with # 1000.
First, attach the entire back surface to the grindstone on a flat surface and sharpen it.
When Burr (Kaeri) comes out, sharpen the front side.
Sharpen the knife at an angle to the grindstone to remove the burr.
At this time, care must be taken not to scratch the surface of the cutting edge.
Do not put too much effort in every process.
Once the blade is formed with # 1000, do the same with # 3000 as above. Please finish with # 8000 at the end.
* Up to # 3000 is sufficient.
Basically, the blade is formed with # 1000.
