    Misono Swedish Carbon steel

    Does anyone has any information about the steel used by Misono? Although it's tough stuff and takes and holds a crazy edge, sharpening it is done in no time. Major thinning and rebevelling, it just take a fraction of the time I need with other carbons like 1095, AS or SK-4 who are already very easy to deal with. Any thoughts?

    What is the edge retention comparable to? Better than white steel but not quite as good as semi-stainless a la HD/Carbonext? What is it comparable to, if anything?

    Edge retention: a little better than 1095, not as spectacular as AS. Haven't used white steel or carbonext enough to compare.

    From my research I have the impression that the stainless steel have a similar edge retention as konosuke hd and carbonext.

    In my experience, it is nowhere near the HD. They have two stainless lines, anyway: the 440 moly and the UX10 swedish. Neither has particularly good edge retention.

    In fact, they have three stainless lines: UX-10, 440 and moly. That said, the OP is still interested in experience others have with sharpening of the Misono Carbon.

    Has anyone tried the western debas in this ( sweeden steel ) line?

    I've been eyeing-off the 210mm on Koki's site for ages.

    They are just cool knives to handle.

    The sharpening goes fast and actually stays there for a bit. Fair bit. Im thinking of something to compare it with but it always get the shiteitiest jobs so cannot compare really

    I'm a bit partial, but in my experience, the edge holds longer than white 1 and white 2, but not as long as v2. It sharpens up really nicely, but feels a bit worse on the stones than white steels, and somewhat like a highend powdered stainless.
    They're tough as all hell, but they don't get much love any more.
