Yeah, bottom line is if it cuts what you want it to cut, the way you want it to cut, then it's sharp. In practical experience though many if not most of us that are knife geeks have a work space set up where we sharpen. I have a battery of tests that I do to see if I'm done with a given knife. There are lots of ways to do it though so whatever works for each person is fine by me.
