    What's with this Aogami blue super steel? from what I read its the dream steel. Or aogami blue steel #1. What would be the difference? I am looking for a knife that sharpens to a razor with out to much work. and keeps the edge, edge retention.

    HT differences can be dramatic.  S110V is a powdered metalurgy supersteel that far exceeds blue super as a trade off between sharpness and edge retention, though it is much more expensive and you will not find in in kitchen knives at this time.  I saw a comparison of different knife makers using it, and the difference in edge retention for some was better than 50%.
