My dad taught me how to sharpen knives when I was a kid. In fact, I was the one who sharpened his castrating blades before we worked cattle. So I know a thing or two about sharpening knives.

Now the issue. I can sharpen my Benchmade Shane Sibert Auto to shave hair, carry it everyday in my right front pocket for a month, never use it, and then when I need it, it won’t cut hot butter.

This is so frustrating. Does anyone else have knives that suffer from pocket dulling?

I have microtech trodon combat I carry daily and its as sharp as the day I purchased it , but I don't use it for cutting stuff , I have a small gerber i use for cutting things . I don't think just carrying a knife dulls it based on that.

I think the steel types and blade angle make a difference. There are some interesting ideas why this might be happening in this older thread: Do unused knives get dull?
I read thru this and it caused me to think, why don’t broad heads suffer this? I wonder if a coat of cold blue along the knife edge would work?
