Nice, quick review of some real world use! Why can't they all be like this?ejames13 wrote: ↑Mon Sep 17, 2018 2:07 pmPut my Delica to good use for the first time yesterday. I had to trim down a ceiling tile to replace one my cat destroyed. Cats are crazy. I only cut about 2 feet worth of the stuff and it absolutely wrecked the edge. Didn't realize until after the fact that they have insulation in them. Fiberglass maybe? I think it mostly rolled rather than chipped, but I could easily see light reflecting. It took about 10 minutes to sharpen out on the sharpmaker medium rods, but I found it quite easy to bring to a high level of sharpness. Seemed to take a finer edge than my VG-10 Delica with less effort. Good stuff!
I've had limited use with mine. I recently reprofiled it and, as far as how it sharpens, it seems closer to HAP40 than ZDP-189. It's fairly easy to sharpen and seems to take a nice edge without much effort.
I've heard others say it stains easily too, which is why I was really surprised that I had virtually no patina after cutting up both ginger root and lime and letting the juice sit on the blade for a few minutes. Maybe there was still factory oil residue on the blade that was protecting it?WireEdge Roger wrote: ↑Thu Sep 20, 2018 7:41 amI’ve carried a VTOKU Endura nearly every day since they dropped, so maybe 4 months? The edge holding has been very nice for me, but I’m just a casual user. Slicing up junk mail, breaking down cardboard boxes, just a little food prep. It stains instantly and it’ll freckle with rust if put away damp. It seems a lot like Super Blue to me. I carried a SB Endura for about a year straight. It’s very easy to keep sharp, and it sharpens up quick. I’ve reduced the edge angle a little using DMT hones, but I’m not removing too much material at a time.
