Re: 3V or 4V Steel in a folder.

Now "Hamlet" makes a lot more sense...

"3V or not 3V, that is the question"

:p

(Either way, I will continue to be a closet user of my 3V fixed blade utility knife from Ed Schott I've owned for about 20 years now.)

Re: 3V or 4V Steel in a folder.

The really cool thing is that PM Cruwear is tougher than 4V yet Stronger and more wear resistant than 3V. That is why I have been pushing for the Shaman to be in Cruwear. It's a perfect fit. Of course Cruwear is nice on any folder. I personally like 4V because it can run harder and is more wear res...

Never discount the popularity of the flavor of the month, or the influence of respected individuals touting a particular selection. Those individuals can come from arenas as disparate as kni...

Re: More K390?

I think by law it has to be a Para 3. It implicitly states, no foreign steels in Golden made knives. Rex45 or A11/10v should satisfy the k390 itch for most users. Much as I'd like to try K390 in a blade larger than the Urban, I like the policy and enjoy carrying knives made in America from American...

Re: Where's the 3V?

@Xplorer Excellent synopsis of various steels and their traits, and the factors influencing those traits. I will say that I agree with your assessment on the use of "tough knives". While I like them, after a good part of my lifetime devoted to law enforcement, including SRT, mountain and rock climbi...

Re: Where's the 3V?

3V is good stuff. I use it near daily. I'd definitely consider a folder with it if it was in a pattern I prefer (from Golden).

Who's doing them?
Where was this reported? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I enjoy Fred's work and have a handful of pieces. He and Nemo (and my Parisian cousin) were wonderful hosts during our time there. Lots of great memories.

Re: Perrin Street Beat Lightweight

Back in 1999 when my wife and I visited with Fred (and Nemo) in Paris for a couple of weeks, Fred made and surprised me with this...he called it the "Subway Bowie" and I named it "Le Metro" since we were in Paris. (It's roughly the same length as his Griffe.) https://i.ibb.co/P6FkGBn/perrin-subway-b...

Re: Reputable Online Retailer Sugestions and Experiences Good or Bad

I want to give a shout out to Rob at National Knives for great service whether a knife is purchased or not. I recently bought a REX 45 Military from Rob which was shipped promptly and was an excellent example of the breed. But what really struck me as special was his willingness, (this weekend), to ...

I believe there's a weird Al song about that...with an accompanying video:

Skip to 1:15 for the Segway clip.
