So I purchased this knife I think two years ago and planning on pulling it back out of my bag for some use in the kitchens again, I was having a recurring problem last time , with it being pretty brittle, even with the micro bevel, I was sharpening at a 15 on each side then I think if I remember right my micro bevel was about , 25, on a finishing stone, nothing coarse ofc, Using these plastic Board's that all kitchens use these days I put it down to those being harsh on the knife. Perhaps it's just the kind of steel it is, maybe my push cut wasn't great. Any way. Any tips on sharpening angles, I'm pretty sure mine where ok, or micro bevels, or why this micro chipping occurs. I do cut hard veg with it, aswell, and as it is a laser I imagine if probably best get a work horse along side this knife for the harder veg. Any way, wish you all the best. Hope your all not working too hard.
