Hello everyone, I'm basically having a hell of a time figuring out which Para 3 to get, since my only sharpening equipment is the Sharpmaker (plus CBN stones).
Right now I'm undecided between the brown S35VN and the burnt orange REX45 models. Since the ship has sailed on the Cruwear version (profound sadness...), I have been thinking about one of those two models. I can deal with the S35VN on my Native 5 just fine, as well as S30V on my ZT 0350, but I keep reading that the sharpening response of REX45 is very similar to M4, which sounds slightly off-putting, since M4 is supposed to be a bit of a nightmare to sharpen without the proper tools.
Other than that, I'm only worried about it possibly being chippier than S35VN, which coupled with the M4 similarities and it being more responsive to polished edges vs course ones... In short, I enjoy sharpening, but I also enjoy my free time on the weekends haha.
What do you folks reckon?
