i agree with ed your looking at something close to a KSO (knife shaped object) a lot of the manufacturers use JUNK steel especially when it comes to stainless when you look at quality steel both carbon and stainless stainless is more expensive

I prefer carbon steel. Yet I also have stainless steel knives, It seems the 1095 carbon steels are a happy medium between ease of sharpening and edge retention. A good 1095 chrome vanadium blade holds it edge well and sharpens easily. In a wet or humid environment stainless really shines. I really don't need a knife that holds it's edge for a long time yet takes a lot of effort to sharpen when it becomes dull. Give me a blade that holds it's edge reasonably well and sharpens quickly and I'm happy.
