Authors Comments:The 10K Chosera edge is not really functional (unless you want to cut single sheets of paper). But it looks great.

Benchmade 9500 Mini-Auto Stryker 2.9" .1" 154CM 58-60HRC 20 3.5um Top A.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:I've experimented with this knife many dozens of times over the years. My conclusion is that the steel won't hold well under 20 degrees. It's important to treat the blade in two sections to preserve the tanto geometry. I don't recommend a convex edge because of the loss of some of the precision cutting. It's an excellent EDC, especially for any utility work.

Gerber Freeman Drop Point 3.5" .134" S30V 56-58RHC 20 3.5um Bottom A.5 Field Dressing, Skinning
 
Authors Comments:This is a stout knife but doesn't hold an edge like I'd expect from the steel. I initially tried it at 17 degrees but had to go back to 20 to get it to last for an elk or two.

Peter Altenbach Chefs Knife 10" 3mm X45CrMoV15 ? 20 2k Chosera Bottom E Chopping and Slicing
 
Authors Comments:I've had this knife for over 24 years and have used it regularly. The steel isn't spectacular and really doesn't hold up well below 20 degrees. I like the shoulders polished and the edge just a little toothy. -Clay Allison

Authors Comments:The steel is not spectacular and while I'd like to go lower, it only really holds up at 20 degrees and up. I like to keep it fairly polished since I mostly push-cut with it. -Clay Allison
