Eee, are you saying you'd like his knife less if he didn't specify that a wicked edge was used to sharpen the bevel?

Sorry about the delay in replying Kyley, I've been off-line for a while.

Personally, I'd say it's irrelevant to me. I tend to want edge angles under 15 d.p.s. which I understand is the lower limit of the wicked edge and I rarely take the time to put a high grit edge on a knife, so I'd assume I'd be resharpening reasonably soon. I'd also say I may not be a typical customer in that respect. One positive would be that a wicked edge may remove damaged steel in comparison with dry grinding and buffing.

I think the original question was asking whether it had any commercial value. I'm saying I think it is part of the package he offers which has all contributed to his success (he is notable in how quickly he has grown his business). Those shiny edges have some impact.
