I’ve settled on a sharpening system now to pick a knife. I just cook at home and have no commercial experience. Chefs Choice Trisor XV Cheap end grain cutting board - Acacia wood Magnetic knife holder for storage Hand wash and put away I understand this sharpener will limit the sharpness achieved to less than someone experienced with stones or even a novice with an Edge Pro. I believe this sharpener will get knives up to a decent factory new sharpness. Maybe just enough to pass the paper test. That’s sharp enough for me and the time savings is well worth it to me. So now on to the knife question. I understand high end knives will not reach their sharpness potential using a Trisor XV. I have heard it is a pity for a $150 knife to only be sharp enough to shave with. So what level of knife benefits most from this sharpener? Would a VG-10 blade stay sharp significantly longer than a cheap knife? If so does this justify the more expensive knife even though it wont reach its sharpness potential. Tojiro DP is where I'm leaning. I could easily save a little money and go with a cheaper knife if its benefits wont be seen with a Trisor XV sharpener. If you knew this was the only sharpener you were going to use what knife would you buy to go with it?
