Is it not an individual subject of any steel regardless of super duper alloys? What makes it not comparable? It's all subjective BS really. Some people think Cutco is super steel
If the object of using powdered metal steels is ultimately edge retention it would make sense to convex the hell out of them and beat the hell out of them

Just because you sharpen knives for a living doesn't mean that what you say is fact.
If you are going to demand facts, then you better have facts too.

Umberto wrote:"Personal preference is not a factor of how steep or obtuse a edge can be made on a given knife, hardness, geometry, and what you are cutting however do."
A bit contradictory, don't you think?
Jason B. wrote:Also convex is simply a shape and has nothing to do with edge retention. Again, hardness and edge angle will be ultimate factors in deciding edge retention.
Jason B. wrote:The bevel angle SHOULD ALWYAS be the lowest a blade can handle for the cutting tasks it will perform.
Jason B. wrote:The hardness does dictate what a knife can be used for and how it can be sharpened.
