I’ve pretty much come full circle to where I do this with most knives so therefore edge holding isn’t the characteristic I look for in a steel nowadays.
I can totally agree with everything that he just said. But don't sell ATS-55 short because it's a really decent blade steel and I still love a few Spyderco knives that I got during that era.
Jim just hit the nail directly on the center of the head. When he mentions that VG-10 is great in SE & PE both he's not kidding. And there are very few blade steels that I make that statement about. Because most blade steels I've used over the years usually are good in one edge type. But the properties of VG-10 make it great for both edge types. That's one of the reasons that my VG-10 "user" knives probably get more use than most anything else I like.
