“Yo Bocho” or Western-Style Kitchen Knives are very popular around the world.
Mr.Terada, a Master Sushi Chef, explains How to Sharpen a double-edged Western-Style Kitchen Knife on a whetstone.

Almost all the “Yo Bocho” are double-edged for both right and left handed persons.
On the other hand, “Wa Bocho” or Japanese Traditional-type Kitchen Knives are mostly single-edged.
Regarding the single-edged and double-edged, please refer to this article.
