    Sharp for life..? Rockstead Sai ZDP

    Morning,

    Opinions please,last night while browsing through the heinnie haynes brochure i found a lovely knife,which a high price tag but a statement i would love to challenge,sharp for life,i use a chris reeves large sabenza for all of my gralloching.

    Its a brilliant knife needs stripped pretty regular and sharpened but an epic tool,it also has a large price tag,but could i justify double for the "knife that will not require sharpening in its lifetime"

    If they want i would test one for a season,give my poor "reeves" a rest!!

    I have a fixed blade out of Sakai, they make the best steel and sakai steel is just tops if you look into how long the city has been making steel and for what purpose?
    i have never sharpened mine but then is in the collection so not used.
    a lot of my handmade knives have Sakai city blades .

    Hmm,

    Like i said,i am doing a lot of gralloching,don't want to be vulgar and give numbers,but i just can't see it keeping its edge even if it is just the tummy of a deer,and this is all i use the reeves for.

    So you rate it as possible? sorry i only ask as i would buy one if so?

    Just interested how you clean the Sebbi ?
    i thought of using a small Sebenza for roe but was put off as I don't use folders because of the cleaning aspect.

    I know Rockstead use high quality steels, and i know they offer a free sharpening service. If you exploit that free service, You will Never need to sharpen that knife.
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    OK for posing but myself I use a cheap, 12 knife with easy sharpen blade. Sharpen it each time I use it, chuck it in dishwasher after use. Suspect I can loose/wear out 10 or more of these and still be in pocket.
    How's your end of the gene pool today?

    More like about 90 of them and you'd still be in pocket!
