    Totally Eamon. I had that same knife from Aframes for a few years, and it was great fun to use, not to mention to sharpen. Takes a little getting used to it for petty tasks on veggies, but it's...

    Yeah, I still like the white steel Tadatsuna. At this point the patina is bombproof (literally, I couldn't get it to rust without polishing the face) and it's just so easy to sharpen to near...

    Or if the concern is just ease of sharpening and getting the best edge immediately (and not worrying about it lasting forever), try a white steel like the Tad or many others. This really comes down...

    Indeed. It's no mistake that Carter won a sharpening contest on the old forum. And I think everybody here knows the referee. (I know, that's not the final word, but it means something). Even if...
