Have had the knife a few days now. It arrived with a weird grind (edge wise) I didn't like. Sharp on one side, dull on the other. So I re-profiled it with the Edge Pro system to 15º per side. Factory edge was something weird like 20/25 - took awhile to get both edges on par and to 15º. After I got it scary sharp I took it outside and annihilated some branches I found on the ground. Taking great pains to essentially ruin my freshly scraped and polished scary sharp edge. It held up ok. But after I was done molesting the hell out of the edge with multiple hard old dried out branches and softer wet branches, It wouldn't shave my arm hair much at all. Few quick passes on my Sharpmaker it shaves hair with ease. So given the ease at which my edge was restored to more than adequate sharpness, I'm far from being malcontent. I'm absolutely fine with the steel's performance. Good knife.
