    Inexpensive with good quality like Victorinox, Mora and Opinel?

    I'm been out of the loop for a while. What brands and models are considered to have good quality for a low price? From before I remember Victorinox, Mora and Opinel, what else is out there? Any newcomers?

    DMT duosharp not hitting the very start of the edge

    If I'm sharpening a knife with no sharpening choil the DMT duosharp doesn't seem to hit the part of the blade right after the ricasso. I think that's what the part is called.

    Having trouble sharpening my GEC

Using diamond stones freehand I really struggled getting an acceptable edge on them. So...

    Blade damage from repeated hard openings?

    Instead of asking in the current Manix maxamet thread I'll ask here. The question isn't specifically about a Manix 2, but more about really hard steels like maxamet that doesn't seem to appreciate impacts very much. Can a high hardness blade get damaged over time with hard openings? Flicking it...
