comment Are Damascus steel kitchen knives worth it?
Being super hard doesn't guarantee longer edge preservation. Hard materials can be brittle and simple break when encountering an obstacle.

comment What's optimal hardness for a kitchen knife blade?
Well, I'm aware of a local knife model, hopefully discontinued years ago, that used steel so soft it would never hold edge. It just makes no sense to sharpen those knifes, because if you do you find them dull an hour later.

comment Is it worth to install a gas stove with a big gas bottle in the kitchen?
Wow, in my jurisdiction having gas containers indoors is simply illegal. We have like several explosions per year - usually when gas containers are used in welding.

Is there any threshold such that I shouldn't consider knives with lower hardness?
