Hi from a new Spyderco enthusiast. I recently picked up a Caly 3 (zdp-189) and plan on using it as an everyday utility knife. I also bought a Chaparral (S30V) that I intend to give to my father for his birthday. Or maybe the other way 'round..not sure yet! In any case both look very well made and are very sharp.
I understand that both of these steels are very hard, and I have little experience with hand sharpening. So what's the best way to keep these blades sharp? Would a Sharpmaker be the way to go? And would I need the diamond rods? Do the standard grit rods have any impact on these steels?
Thanks for any advice!
