I have a collection of SAK's for tool kits and a few tiny ones for inoffensive carry. I was putting lanyards on the little ones and thought I should touch up the edges. I have been stropping all other knives, predominantly kitchen because they get the most use, for over a year or so now. I know that the steel used in SAK's isn't particularly tough - the emphasis is on versatility, ease of sharpening and easy maintenance, hence stainless. So I'm guessing that they will only ever need stropping! That's my plan from now on. No point wearing them out unnecessarily. Any thoughts?
