Re: What Knive makers are sharpest?
Dozier/Crotts...scary sharp and stay that way for some time. D2 steel. Maybe not the best for a survival type knife where you may be chopping, high carbon stainless would probably serve that role better. But for cutting, field dressing, caping, etc...I've never owned a sharper knife. My Crotts has been through 3 seasons of deer hunting, field dressing and light butchering (6+ deer) and still shaves hair.
In terms of factory knives, I've always found it easy to put a great edge on my Buck knives.
