Super steel EDC knives: make sharpening (almost) unnecessary
The super steel on EDC knives remains sharp, really sharp, for a really long time. As a result you will almost never have to sharpen the blade. These types of steel, of course, don’t really have super powers, they are only optimized to retain their sharpness. Because of the substantial amounts of carbon and fancy additions such as vanadium and silicon these knives are good at staying sharp. So you never have to sharpen them? That is not really the case. They retain their sharpness for a long time, but will become blunter after frequent use. It will only take a little longer than with other types of steel.
