Reeeeally depends on what you're using to sharpen with. The stock Edge Pro stones eat up 20CP like it's 420J2, and they're not diamonds.Brock O Lee wrote:If you dont use diamonds, you'll find that 20CP is about twice as difficult to sharpen than M390/204P because it has twice the amount of vanadium

Jim Ankerson puts them in the same category. I think timing was part of the answer - it was an early Para 2 sprint, before the knife got hysterically hot. I also think the gray was less attractive than many of the subsequent colors (orange and green especially), but that could just be me - I'm not a fan of the gray.bdblue wrote:I thought I read that 20cp was equivalent to S90V and one step ahead of 204p/m390. However it seems that the 20cp para2 did not create nearly as much hysteria as the xhp and 204p models that came right after it. Maybe that was just timing, maybe it was the gray G10.
