A2 was totally it. Clark & Williams tight-mouthed single iron smoothers were totally it (before cap irons were totally it). D2 was totally it (you just need the right honing media [insert confused/frowning smiley here]). PM-V 11 is totally it. I'm betting that PM-VI 12, 13, and 14 will be totally it, too. Manage that pipeline!

Most of it is marketing bull$hit, and/or internet one-upsmanship, or 18th century crapola from one or two sources who weren't even woodworkers, etc., etc., etc.

The truth is somewhere in the middle, where it's always to be found.
