A friend of mine recently decided to use his Kershaw Ricochet to scrape off the black coating on his Cold Steel Bad Axe.
After about an hour the blade was finally dull.
There was no nicks or damage of any kind, and he was not scraping on a very friendly angle either.
I broke out my good ole Spyderco sharpmaker and proceded to sharpen. 5 alternating strokes on both sides and it was shaving sharp.
I was amazed at how quick and easy it was to get the edge back. I already knew the steel was easy to touch up because I own a Random task. But I have never dulled mine to the condition of the Ricochet.
What are the drawbacks to this steel? I wish all my knives were made with 440V.
Well, I said it was a small review
