    It is our human duty to enjoy life. We’ve got to be greedy about living. We learned that greed is a vice, but that’s old. Greed is a virtue. Especially this greediness for life.

    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.

    Blue 2, in my opinion. both V2 knives i've owned have felt more like Blue 2 on the stones than White 2, as well.

    V2 is very similar to 1095 and white no.2 in composition. Just a simple high carbon steel.

    Out of interest, how would you define the feel of Blue #2 compared to white #2 on the stones?
