Default Re: Flexible vs. stiff blade filet knife?

Gotta disagree about wanting a softer metal for your filet knife, you want one that will keep and hold an edge, if you have to sharpen it all the time, you will wear the metal down and the more you wear it down towards the spine, the more you change the geometry of the edge, making it thicker and thicker. A good blade with the right grind and heat treatment will last much longer with minimal touching up than a soft one
