Japan Stainless

Why doesn't stainless steel from Japan hold an edge?

Just knowing a steel is stainless does not tell you anything about it's ability to hold an edge.

You would have to know the Rockwell number to determine that.

I have a Japanese sword that is 600 years old, has never been sharpened and you can shave with it.
