Depends on the knife.
I bought my Boker Pipsqueak and didn't need to sharpen it for at least two weeks because of the crazy sharp factory edge.
On the other end of the spectrum, I got a DW Childress custom fixed blade on here that came to me with no microbevel at all, definitely needed to...
I like 1095 a lot for a straight up utility blade that gets a lot of use. The fancy side of me prefers S35VN for a relatively low-maintenance stainless blade.
1095 is easy to sharpen, and I love me a forced patina.
