Reed knives aren't meant for cutting, so one could sharpen a knife as sharp as a katana, and it may not work so well for reed making. To be effective, a reed knife needs a burr, or in other words, an almost microscopic bend of metal at the edge of the blade. It's possible to set a burr while sharpening on a stone or a system, but personally I find it a million times easier and faster to set a burr using a honing rod.

I personally use one intended for culinary knives, but it still works fine...
