    Depends on what sort of job you do. I personally like to have a high standard on finishes so Bette really of having a proper tool

    Yes and no you can cut it with a hacksaw blade but will always be better with a kife

    I own quite a few quality high carbon japanese kitchen knives and straight razors that I've learned to sharpen over the years. Tbh I can't see anything provided by armacell that is particularly unusual or that a combination whetstone or decent sharpener cant sort out with say an ordinary kitchen or bread knife. In the end they are just knives that you have to keep to a level of sharpness so I doubt the steel used is really up to much given the cost. The harder the steel the longer it stays sharp the more expensive and difficult to sharpen, I'm not questioning your motives just whether this armacell set will perform any better than a half decent craft knife with disposable snap off blades or something out of the kitchen as long as you know how to keep it sharp.
