Hi. What's your opinion on SG2 steel?

One of the better powdered steels. Sharpens okay, takes an okay edge. Home kitchen so I don't really test edge longevity.

My take on SG2, when cutting food I can tell it is a hard blade and tough cutting edge. I think it performs best with a medium finish. It cuts well at a high polish and even better if using a natural waterstone. I still find the edge lasts the longest at about #2000 grit. It keeps that biting edge longer (a couple days in a restaurant kitchen). Feedback is like stainless steel on both the cutting board and stones. Really good wear resistance and not too brittle. No micro chipping but it won't survive a drop on the floor.
