Yes sir! That was 100% factory edge, no stropping or anything between ingredients.
Factory edges on these are like a 3k refinement with extra teeth.
Best info I can find on the steel used in the core (ats-314) is that it's a nickel stainless steel with very fine grain structure. Used mainly in high-end scissors, I think the cheapest scissors you can get in this steel start around $400-500 or so. It's a good stuff!
