I intend to start doing some whittling over the Christmas break. What is the best steel in terms of edge holding? I need it to be in a folder not a fixed blade. I would value edge holding, rather than hair splitting sharpness, as I am not particularly good at the act of sharpening and spend more time at that than actually using the knife. The wood used will not be hard wood, but will probably be either green or semi dried softwood. The diameter will range from ½" to 1 ½ ". Would my Spyderco Calypso Jnr Lightweight, with VG10 blade be good? What grade stone should be used for this job? Any suggestions would be appreciated. By the way a very Happy Christmas to you all in the USA.
