Re: Disappointed with M4 Mule Performance

Test another (decent)steel with similar(mule) geometry on the material you're using the m4 on. That would be the real test.

As I said in the other thread, what Elmax has over other steels is a cooler name. You gotta admit a Elmax just has a cool sound to it.
Yeah, even more kool than cruwear...

Maybe combine them and have a bastard named crumax or wearmax or elcru

What ever happened to Elmax

I thought it was a premium "super steel". Too many haters like jdspydo (John Davis, yt rope cut test guy)or whatever his name is crapped on it years ago, so now it's not popular enough to use anymore? Please say it ain't so. I've recently reacquired a large lionspy and gonna see what I remember bein...

Re: Cruwear Native Chief ????

Isn't 3v more corrosion resistant than cru and 4v? Think I'm actually leaning towards 3v as the go to all around semi-stainless steel thus far. Have recently purchased a few nice barkies in 3v. Would like to see more spydies in 3v. Probably wishful thinking though due to m390, 90v, xhp, and everyth...

Re: Black Friday cyber Monday DEALs?!?

I just got bit by a spyder again. BHQ bundle deals. Finally grabbed a province. Came with a mantra 2 almost free at 290.
Also magnitude was only 180. Guess they've been discounted for awhile just never payed it much attention. Looks preety nice to add to collection.

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

All depends. I usually try to stay away from Walmart. But, some items are kinda hard to find elsewhere at a decent price. Usually socks and underwear and such are typical items. So, longer folding blade is a must as crazy people like to target Walmart for some reason. I prefer not to be a victim if ...

Re: CPM M4 vs K390

M4 cuts better. I only say that cause I don't have k390.
I care more about knife design than which steel it has.
Thought part of the knife enjoyment and experience was sharpening it? Wouldn't have to do that if it was a super magic steel that never dulls...

I know this sounds crazy, but my brother had one show up at his house today.

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

Cruwear Micarta Shaman <> PD-1 Micarta Shaman. Just like a M390 PM2 <> 20CV PM2. The Cruwear run is done, never to be made again in that combination of CPM-Cruwear with Brown Micarta. If they make a new sprint run with PD1 and Brown Micarta or one with CPM-Cruwear and OD Green Micarta, those are di...
