Beginner questions

Hello everyone,,
I recently bought a Munetoshi Kurouchi Gyuto but I still have some questions about its use. After using it I noticed that it had developed a very minor burr. I read that honing rods aren't suited for aligning the edge on Japanese chef's knives. But what do I use then instead of a honing rod?

I also noticed that there are tiny chips on the edge. I don't have photo's of it but it's the same as the photo's in this commercial restaurant equipment thread. From what I understand this happens because it's the factory edge. Is this a correct assumption ?
