    Remember I stopped cutting and the blade was still sharp... ;)

    I don't have any plans on ever cutting until dull cardboard wise.... :D

    I dunno for sure, mine is reground to .005" behind the edge and 15 DPS and handled 3,800 ft of cardboard with no edge damage at a tested hardness of 62 RC.

    So I can say it's likely I suppose........

    I don't cut until dull either.....

    Just going by what my data says, the knives/steels that kept the lowest cutting force for the longest time on 5/8" manila rope.

    Both knives were .010" behind...

    That said the steels that have held a very sharp edge the longest for me in testing have been S110V and K294..... Both customs at high hardness....

    All I can say is go for it, gather the equipment, media, test knives etc and have at it is all I can say.

    That said the steels that have held a very sharp edge the longest for me in testing have...
  10. There isn't one...... Bottom line..... ;) ...

    There isn't one...... Bottom line..... ;)

    Nothing is going to hold that type of edge under any kind of real use, even light use....

    Once you cut something it's gone..... The steel doesn't...

    Well I would wait and see what you need 1st, but the CBN rods might be a good idea....

    Yeah that's it, but it will be cheaper here: http://www.knifeworks.com/spydercotri-anglesharpmakermodel204mf.aspx#.U8W7sPldXoU

    Just try and keep it simple and things will get easier over time. :)

    It's not really all that difficult or complicated as some people would have you believe, it just takes time.

    I would say get a Sharpmaker, watch the video and practice on a cheap knife then move on to the better ones. :)

    I have shaved with S30V a few times, Military......

    Also know someone who owns a straight razor made in S90V.....

    I have taken edges far beyond what most would even try with Pikal liquid Polish, Mothers Mag Wheel polish is also excellent, either is far beyond stone level....

    Was just something to do to see...

    No, they are just easier to get to that point and more economical.

    So the perception that they have the ability to get sharper is wrong..
  18. It really doesn't if both are sharpened the same...

    It really doesn't if both are sharpened the same one would have a very hard time telling the difference between them assuming everything was the same as far as razor sharpness goes.

    I can get CPM...

    Any steel will take a fine edge in the end, it just depends on the person sharpening it and what they are using to sharpen with.....

    But typically the finer the grain the finer the edge the steel...

    To cut to the bottom line here and really simplify it in knives it's not really going to matter what the steel is as it has more to do with geometry and sharpening talent than anything else. The...

    In the non PM steels... yeah, the lower the alloy/carbide content the better usually.

    The PM steels are fine grained due to the process.

    Grain size has a lot to do with it, the finer grained steels will take a more refined edge in general terms so the PM steels would defiantly have the advantage here.

    Although the more popular...

    It's not really all that bad to deal with, seems to take a nice edge without too much real effort based on what I have experienced with it. :)

    That's observations based on a custom fixed blade at...
