While I cannot tell the difference, that doesnt mean there isnt one, and I acknowledge that there is and thats exactly why Im here
So I bought the 8 inch wusthof classic
I'm excited for it to come in.
Now my next questions have to do with maintanance. Can I use the steel that came with the cheap set for routine maintanance(read that its good to use the steel to get rid of burs) or do I need a better one. Also I am planning on getting the edge maker pro like recommended by you guys when this starts to dull. For someone that uses it 5 times a week or so, how often is sharpening needed. I know that really depends on the amount of cutting and what your cutting, but I just want a ballpark answer to know whether its weekly or once a year.
Thanks everyone for their help, you guy's have been very patient and great!
