    Funnily enough, my globals are my easiest to sharpen knives yet don't keep the edge for that long.

    My beater would be my Victorinox pastry knife. Cheap, sorta sharp and takes abuse well.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Ended up ordering a JCK 1000/4000 for 5 under budget. I may end up adding a rougher grit and a smoother one at some point.

    MAC Knife Pricing?

    Can anybody explain why a MAC Original Series 6 1/2 inch utility knife is $60 (39) in the US, yet supplied officially in the UK it's 96?!

    I really want one but I ain't being ripped off.
