How sharp is stainless steel? Can someone give me a comparsion to how sharp stain steel is? are they as sharped as kitchen knives? or how about samurai swords?

• Stainless Steel -

Sharpness depends upon how the blade is ground. A carbon steel knife that has been sharpened is sharper than a dull stainless steel knife.

You may be more interested in hardness than in sharpness.

Stianless steel knives "hold their edges" and stay sharper longer than cheaper forms of steel, in general. Samurai sword steel maintains sharpness well because of heat treatment and work hardening processes that add strength.
