what is the edge retention like?
i read that the kochi v2 steel was comparable to white 2 but with a little better retention. tougher than AS steel and less prone to chipping. when i think of white 2 but better retention i think of HD steel. am i close at all?
In my experience HD steel holds an edge much longer than white no.2. Days/ week for white vs months for HD in home use.
so how would you compare the v2 to something like HD steel if you dont mind me asking?
V2 is very similar to 1095 and white no.2 in composition. Just a simple high carbon steel.
