    Damasteel Pettys

    Pierre sent two of his Damasteel pettys to me to sell (yeh - lucky me!) and he asked that I sharpen them, not that they needed it, so that I could provide him with any information on this new steel worked compared with what I've seen.



    I did find a couple of things interesting and noteworthy....

    The first thing I noticed is how abrasion resistant this stuff is, on par with the Japanese AS steel, but not as bad as some of the Japanese high end stainless stuff. Enough that I had to break out my more serious steel removing stones and they didn't move it all that quickly.

    The second thing, a bit more interesting for sure, is that the burr/wire simply snapped off like nothing I've seen on a knife before. Both knives left a wire lying on the strop.


    I'm not saying that any of this is bad, it's simply what I noticed, and Pierre asked that I share this with the forum.

    Wow, that is something I haven't seen before. Have you ever seen that before Dave? If these are that resistant, and being pettys that are used mostly in hand, you might have to sharpen them once a year or less.

    I've never seen it happen like this on a knife, very unique.

    I believe the Pierre passaround knife is a gyuto using damasteel.

    Think really dense, more pleasing vg10, with what seems to be better edge retention. It seems to give you piece of mind, where as I always worry about chipping with vg10. That's what I thought anyways.

    Just curious, why do you worry about chipping with vg10?
