    My 154CM Emerson Seax takes a razor sharp edge and holds it. I have had good luck with pretty much all my Emersons. Only a couple had blades that were just too thick to make really fine cutters, and those I moved along to a new home.

    Put me down as a fan of 154CM. It's right up there in my favorite steels list. I'm not very fond of so-called super steels that some believe will hold and edge forever (here's a hint: they won't). Give me a knife with steel that I can sharpen quickly in the field when I'm using it. 154CM can be easily sharpened in the field to a working edge and it can take a hair popping edge with a little extra effort.

    Great steel... takes a great edge, holds it and easy to sharpen.

    Its an okay steel. I prefer others but don't mind it.

    Most steels can get hair shaving and even hair widdeling if you know what your doing. If the steel ht is off or burnt edges then things might not fair too well.
