I don't have anything in S110V but I have S90V and I will gladly sharpen it all day over ZDP-189. And it will wear my equipment far less.
Surely you jest Eli. :)

ZDP-189 is a pleasure to sharpen with simple SiC stones. I’ve found it gets silly sharp off as low as a 220grit SiC rock and near hair whittling off 600grit. :confused:
Maybe it is my specific specimin Bloke but it is a bear. It scoffs at SiC.

Perhaps Eli but Spyderco seem consistent in heat treat.

Anyhow, as I said earlier I find ZDP-189 a pleasure to sharpen with SiC but it might be worth a mention that I keep all stones fresh and sharp by lapping/flattening with the relevant loose grit SiC on a sheet of glass with water and I use plenty of Windex as the lubricant. :)

I'd love to see a wharnie Delica in ZDP. I think it'd be perfect for the steel.
I've been thinking this, as well. Might make a good sprint, although I'd love to see it in regular production.

I’d give that a workout. Not laminated, please.
