This will provide data points for proper bit of research, regarding tool steel and sharpening approaches.

There is no compendium matching a given brand of iron with an appropriate (read: reasonably priced) media to keep it sharp.

If you'll excuse the pun, this line of inquiry should cut through the clutter and will have empirical data to back up conclusions.

Most of us have wrestled with marketing claims that didn't yield good tools.

Perhaps this research will end that.
