BWAHAHAHAHAHA! I HAVE BOUGHT A KNIFE THAT WILL NEVER NEED SHARPENING!! I shall be the envy of all due to the high tech sharpnesses!!! ($1.99 @ Menards...) (edit) Took it out of the package- Laughable edge, unevenly ground with a coarse enough wheel so it was effectively (not so micro) serrared. Took this sow's ear and did some work on the 500, 2,000 and 5,000 Shapton water stones, erased the crappy grind marks, then stropped it a bit. Will smoothly cut a loosely held piece of copier paper now. But by no means has it become silken and full of cash. Judged by the hardness of steel noted while sharpening vs. other knives in my kitchen? Not a very hard blade. How in hell did they come up with "never needs sharpening"... It's MAYBE a step above the old "Ginzu 2000" serrated food saws. Just barely.
