    Steelophiles-what's so important about the type of steel?

    It is certainly not just bragging rights. High edge retention steels will cut order of magnitudes longer than basic steels like 1095. There are often strength improvements to be had as well. I still like 1095 and other steels like 5160, 52100, 01 15n20 for how easy it is to sharpen. If I...

    It can shave, but not slice a tomato????

    I used to strop my knives a lot on a leather strop loaded with chromium oxide. I found, after stopping, they cleanly, easily shave in either direction. Slice paper like a champ....but didn't easily bite into soft tomatoes. If I went back and refreshed the edge on a diamond stone or...

    Inexpensive with good quality like Victorinox, Mora and Opinel?

    I have about 10 Opinel. Carbon and a few stainless less. The carbon is easy to sharpen. Holds an edge about whst you would expect for a simple carbon steel at middling hardness.
