Hi Sal thanks for "The Expert Advice"
I was surprised too but sometimes think I have gotten too spoiled with all the awesome Steels I am used to. S30V, S35VN, S110V. M390, CTS-204P, CTS-XHP, Elmax, M4, CRU-WARE- 52100. My Goodness Sal this is all your fault you turned me into a steel junkie. I should not even know all these steel types by name.
Yes I used it in the kitchen and was super impressed, then I carried it to work took apart a large box from Dell and could no longer cut printer paper by locking into a scallop. I am certain I did not hit a staple. Was kind of surprised to see scratches in the beautiful shiny surface but later learned it is the way of this steel.
Maybe I am just expecting too much? When I get home I will sharpen it per everyone's advice here I really, really like the knife allot and living beachside in Florida corrosion is an issue.
