Everyone has different uses for their knives. The Spydiechef is great for a camp knife. For food prep as well as camping type usage. The blade shape is perfect for working with food on a cutting board. LC200 is super stain resistant, and while it holds an edge for a long time, it's not impossible to sharpen if you have moderate skills. Maxamet is a different story. It holds an edge for a ridiculously long time, but sharpening can be pretty challenging, especially if you let the edge get buggered up at all.
