    It's the total angle. So it's 11-12 deg per side. Henckels / Miyabi always advertise the total angle.

    HAP40 and ZDP189 are not really comparable. The only thing they have in common is that they are from Hitachi and that they can reach similar hardness. The chemical composition is:

    I've got a 600 D, also made of VG10, and usually take it up to a 10K Chosera. No issues at all. The blade really likes that 10K finish, and the mirror finish sure looks great. But saying that, I do...

    The video is shown on the SLT website. The Zwilling Kramers were SLT exclusives when they were launched. So you may assume that SLT and Henckels do have some sort of collaboration. Who most likely...

    If Mr. Kramer himself says they are Choseras, I think he should know. You can't simply claim something like that in a public video if it's not right.

    SG2 and VG10 (like VG1, VG5 etc) are steel names created by Takefu. As Takefu doesn't produce steel, but only laminates or trades them, the steel may be traded by the steel producer under another...

    Microbevels work wonders on PM steel. I put a primary bevel of about 16 degrees (included angle) on my PM steel knives plus a microbevel at 30 degrees with a few strokes on a #3000 or #10000 grit....

    The Cermax is not your usual Henckels. It's made in Japan and much closer to a Japanese knife in terms of profile and geometry than it is German.

    The problem here is that the Cermax is too hard to...

    I haven't got too many problems with a prototype Miyabi that I bought at Henckels' shop sale in Japan. That knife has a ZDP189 core and soft damascus cladding. It takes longer to sharpen, I guess...

    Well, you need to take into account who made this post. Definitely not someone that seems to like Henckels and even with a professional reason to dislike them.

    Those highly alloyed PM steels like SG2 definitely need to be heat treated right. If so, you may have a great knife with very little chipping. If not, it may chip at the sight of anything hard. Can't...

    VG10, ZDP189 (Cowry X), SG2, SKD11, 52100.

    Haven't tried edge retention of 52100 without microbevel. But at least with harder stainless steel it does make a significant difference.

    A blade with 161-layers and a core of SG2 is damn expensive. I don't think you can find knives with such material for $ 399 from any maker. The typical WS customer wants Damascus, and that's what...
