Just because AUS6 is not as tough as S30V does not mean its not a decent knife steel. Yes, it may require more sharpening, but it is a lot easier to sharpen.

When you speak of 'wearing out' the blade, I think of the old-time butchers knives. They were generally made of a bit softer steel so that they were easy to sharpen and the butchers would sharpen them many times per day. Even at that - cutting and sharpening all day - the blades would last for many years.
