since when is sr-101 (or 5200 for that matter) been known to chip?!
it CAN chip... more readily than INFI.
but it's VERY tough steel with good edge holding and its fairly easy to sharpen.
INFI is REALLY easy to sharpen, has good corrosion resistance, holds a great edge (just as good as sr-101 right?) even under heavy use, the edge pretty much will NOT chip and it's extremley tough.
that is just from my understanding, some may clarify what I have to say, or prove me wrong.
but some of thew stuff is opinion, i've heard that INFI holds a better edge than sr101 and I've heard sr101 holds a better edge than INFI.
so I guess it depends somewhat...
hope that helsp a little.
both are GREAT steels.
