    I've got a miyabi 600 mc with SG2 steel and I really enjoy it. Once you've set the edge you want on it (for me I changed it to more of a 80/20 edge) it resharpens fairly quickly. It takes a keen edge especially when i finish with a loaded strop. It reacts beautifully to a borocilicate rod and gives me a hair shaving edge in a pro environment for a good two weeks before i choose to resharpen. I like SG2. On the elites I think it worked well with regards to the butchering style knives they have like the honesuki.

    That's a pretty cool knife. It's like a thinned out Damascus wa hiromoto. The iron cladding is pretty reactive. I etched one and it came out beautiful.

    It was really thin behind the edge. Pretty great cutter, kinda felt like a kochi.

    Ease of sharpening, edge retention? I'm actually very interested in a kochi

    AS is pretty easy to sharpen as far as I'm concerned. Edge retention was pretty durn good as well. Responds well to stropping too.

    I have had very good experiences with SG2. It is an exceptional stainless steel. Of course it doesn't sharpen as quickly as carbon, but it holds a very good edge for a long time; exactly what it's supposed to behave like.
