S35VN isn't arguably "the best commercial steel on the market". It's chosen for economic reasons, frankly.
Say something like this, if you gotta argue something:
S35VN is one of an elite group of steel alloys informally known as 'super steels' in the knife community. A favorite of modern knifemakers, S35VN is recognized for its ability to keep a sharp edge, resistance to chipping, cracking, bending and staining, and overall ease of sharpening, at a cost that arguably makes it the best 'bang for the buck' super steel available in the consumer market today.
