That surprises me a little. I assume you mean 30 inclusive, which is what they generally ship with? Is it possible that it could be a case of the steel at the edge being fatigued and needing to get through to fresh steel, as I think I've heard mentioned before? I was nervous about S30 for years because of the chipping reputation it earned at the beginning, but now that I've used it my fears have been allayed, I've never experienced anything that I know as chipping on it. Sorry to hear it's not working well for you.

Never had peanut butter and jelly! I once met another person who had never tried a PBJ and it truly saddened my heart. I hadn't thought it possible to grow up without them! Glad they eventually found you.
Sometimes I miss this forum, sometimes I dont. Having red this thread and then discovering it was all about the peanut-butter, made it al good fortunately.
Of course JaM enjoys discussion of peanut butter.

I was really hoping you wouldn't get dragged into this, but I'm impressed that you're so dedicated that you'd divert time to trying to fulfill even such an unreasonable request.

I don't agree with some of your conclusions. I'm not so arrogant or self centered to say that I am right and you are wrong. Our testing provides different conclusions than your testing. There are too many variables in comparing our methods to come to absolute conclusions.
Sal, the world of diplomacy lost a fine voice when you turned to knives.

And even that is often a waste of breath, as we learned a few times over during the Great Warranty Debacle.
