    alright, before i make any decisions, i have a question about steels. how is the french carbon steel compared to others? is it more reactive, does it take a good edge, hold it? is it hard to maintain? from what i've seen it doesnt seem to be overly reactive, i havent seen any completely rusted out Sabatier's.

    The biggest difference is going to be hardness. The sabs are going to be much softer steel than the fujiwara.

    From what I've read people who own Sabs, tend to love their Sabs, vintage ones at least. I love mine. I don't know how hard or soft it is, I just know it works and does what I want it to do.
