Thought I might need to sharpen the AEB-L for the first time this morning, but first pulled out the hone and stropped it on a piece of wood and a cork. The freaking thing is sharper than ever.
Is it Devin's stock edge?
It's as it came from EE--don't know the answer to that.
I doubt they resharpened the knife after they got it from Devin. Devin's edges are very toothy and aggressive. That type of edge will last you a long time if you treat it right.
