Help me love my new gyuto!

malkazanie | Apr 11, 2011 10:22 AM

Continuing from the "Talk About Knives thread": Hi folks,inspired by much of the talk on these boards, I just received my Fujiwara FKM gyuto.

Sharpness out of the box is good, but not blowing me away - is it normal to immediately sharpen right when getting the knife? The handle and bolster are taking a bit of getting used to (I'm used to a 10-inch Wusthof) but I feel like I'm missing out on something. I do use pinch grip, and I just tested it out on an onion. Can you help me love my knife?
