Do you have a particular concern? The curve isn't too tight... you should be able to sharpen it with the regular stones. You might need to go both directions to cover it well. Just let the stones flow thru the curve... don't use too much pressure or you can dig the side of the stone into the edge. But it shouldn't be much different than a regular sharpening.

Yup. Curtis is right. If you do it carefully, you should be able to do it the way you sharpen every knife.

I've got a Kershaw Blur with about the same recurve. No difference from any other knife.

However, if the recurve is "steeper" (sorry, English is not my first language), try to sharpen using just the corners/edges of the stones. Works particularly well with Choseras, since they are relatively soft.

I have done recurved blades with smaller radii than that. No problems.
You don't have to concentrate on using the edges of the stones... in places it just happens, depending on the amount of curvature.
You should be fine with your normal technique and stones!
