    The traditional knives are the keenest no doubt. However with good HT, and proper grind a symmetric ground blade will get very thin and keen edge.

    I got a new Spiderco in S30V, and am enjoying playing with it but... My Nani's kept micro chipping the edge. Drove me nuts lol.

    So I thought the Arks might help - and it did! Weird steel the S30V is.

    Can't wait to try my kitchen knives on these stones.

    Thanks for all your input guys!!
