If you use Henkel's and compare it to this, you will find a huge difference. Not so much if you have used knives in a 61+ Rockwell range, there isn't so much difference.

    Because of the vanadium in the steel, it is tough to work. It eats sand paper. That is why i used a stone. And a cheap one at that. Much easier.
    I can say it holds an edge much longer than a lot of stuff I've used. Although I don't mess too much with AS or other carbons/cladded for gyuto. The SV is really impressive. It gets nice and toothy and doesn't wear much and we use the crappy Polly boards at work. I have only needed to touch mine up once in 3 weeks and I went 5k. 8k. And quick finish on a 15k natural stone that I use for certain steels that respond to that sort of grit, it stays very sharp for a long time. Compared to konosuke, vg-10, even AEBL but not my DT. It's a close draw with the DT AEBL. The knives are too different for a real comparison.
