Tell me about CPM-D2/Kershaw Ken Onion Leek Composite

I'm interested in getting the ken onion leek, but unsure if I want to get the composite blade or the regular. Any and all input is welcome!

Currently I carry around a small gerber knife and I try to take great care of it, despite it being hard to sharpen.

I use my leatherman squirt for opening boxes, so it wont get that type of abuse.

I'm more curious about the strength of the composite metal in terms of chipping, ease of sharpening, life of the blade, etc., from any personal experience you may have, its benefits over the regular blade, and what type of tasks a composite blade would be more suited for.

Thanks!

what do you mean my composite? like carbon steel?

if so, my CRKT that i had was mad of CS, and i loved it... it was a really tough knife, i did things with it that would have broke any other knife..

but it didn't like the stone when i tried to sharpen it... didn't like the stone at all

the edge is made of CPM-D2. from what ive read, that metal holds an edge better and is easy to sharpen, but im curious to what degree thats true and how "easy" easy really is

edit: here's a pic

You'll need a diamond sharpener and patience. It'll take forever to sharpen, but it will hold it longer. I have a Ka-Bar Dozier in D2, nice steel.

Nice, this is exactly the stuff I'm looking for. I don't have a diamond sharpener or great skill with sharpening, so I'm guessing this steel isn't meant for me just yet
