This is my first attempt at including pictures, forgiveness please if it doesn't work

This is how I wrap the knives, the small memo pad is what i use to write to the customers, thanking them trusting me with their knives.

Thanks for that definitely Japanese inspiration there . Do you do a lot of Japanese knives or are they your particular interest.
I think that some of the real quality Japanese knives the Honyaki types are rare to come across & I imagine that most owners of those sharpen them themselves although I have started to learn to use Japanese stones for just this sort of instance since if someone has a knife whose value is in excess of 600€ probable going to a couple of 1000€ then they will insist on them been sharpened in a traditional manner rather like sharpening a Samurai sword . So to prep for this I am sharpening at least one knife a day on these stones and since many of the knives I am practicing on are ex cheap serrated knives I start my bevels from scratch including thinning bevels which are the hardest since if the bevel is say 7˚ then a degree out shows although half the battle at the moment is building a muscle memory following an existing bevel is not hard but I have to stretch myself and move out of the comfort zone.
I am waiting for my WE which I will use on nearly all knives(currently I do the bulk of my sharpening on an EP) but I believe in been prepared for the exceptions and I have no problem in producing very sharp bevels with the Japanese stones but day to day knives should be a little quicker to do with the WE since both sides are been done almost simultaneously and since most knives I get to sharpen are often standard chefs knives with lost bevels the WE will be the best tool for these .

No I don't do too many traditional Japanese knives, I'm just fascinated by Japanese culture. Japan is the centre of gravity in terms of knife sharpening. A key moment in my sharpening journey came while I was visiting New York City and stumbled into a Japanese knife store. (not Korin). I was fortunate enough to meet an old man has been sharpening knives since he was 15 and my respect for the art of sharpening took a giant leap that day.
