Best case, find a professional sharpener. Used to be you could take your knives to a butcher shop and they'd do them for free, but I'm not sure anyone does that anymore. They use a sharpening band like a knife forger would.

Be sure to hone your knives regularly too, helps keep the edge straighter and last longer.
I've had a nice Wusthof set for 7 years and I have used the exact one I posted several times and my knives cut like they're new. I'm not one to tell people they don't know they're talking about.. but....

Typically, very thin Japanese knives are designed for sushi/fish; whereas more substantial blades like cleavers and debas require more bulk for whacking through bones and such.

I have a Wicked Edge sharpening system, and I can get virtually any blade screaming sharp....single bevel, double bevel....and you name the knife edge angle. Very cool system that pretty much guarantees a constant edge throughout the length of the blade.

Anyway, happy sharpening!!!
I agree with that. The point is that the bevel angle isn't what classifies a knife.

I had a Lansky fixed position sharpener similar to the Wicked Edge. But I don't use it anymore as I didn't think it did a good enough job with certain sized/shaped blades. I've got a collection of novaculite bench stones that I do my sharpening with now. In my opinion, that's the best way to go. It will sharpen an edge down to a polish. The stones are pretty expensive, but I make enough money sharpening knives to make up for it pretty quickly. And they'll last forever.

Happy sharpening to you as well!
