20 degree
WHAT IS THE SHARPENING ANGLE ON ESEE KNIVES? The edges on all of our knives are applied by hand.

We suggest using a Spyderco Sharpmaker for general edge maintenance or a flat diamond hone.

Which is better S30V or S35VN?

While both are premium steels, S35VN has slightly more toughness and can get a finer edge than S30V. S35VN has more niobium, which leads to finer carbides, increasing toughness and allowing it to get a finer edge. It’s unlikely you’ll notice much of a difference, but on paper, S35VN is better.
