This is my point exactly. Just because I try to make my knives last doesn't mean I don't know how to sharpen, and the implication is just plain rude. Spending $400, or more on a knife is a very substantial investment for me, and I try to baby my knives as much as possible. I clean my Nike Air Max everytime I wear them, too.
I truly didn't mean anything disrespectful towards Jon, and I can clearly see it came off that way. My apologies.
I do still stand by my statement that not trying to make your edges last, and resorting to frequent low grit sharpening is not necessary. I do understand that many are true knuts and just enjoy the practice, but for me I enjoy spending time to get my knife as perfectly tuned as possible, and then seeing how long I can make that edge last in a hardcore environment.
