I guy i work with overheard me bitchin about how long it takes to get a knife sharpened by the factory, and told me that he does this kesagiri sharpening, and gave me his business card? But I'm a little dubious about having my knives sharpened using a technique/method I've never heard of or know what kind of knives its best for.

I've googled it but all that told me was that its japanese

In my experience, kesagiri is a term used for a diagonal cut. More specific a diagonal cut with a sword as practiced in kenjitsu or iiado. Also something that would be practiced during tameshigiri (cutting practice with your sword). I have never heard of kesagiri defined as a form of sharpening, but I am not an expert and have limted sources in the use of the word.

hope this helps.
