Re: Exotic Japanese steels

Since people seemed to love 52100 so much, I'd like to see some uncladded white #1 in a knife that will really take advantage of the steel's ability to hold a super fine edge.
Something like a White #1 Nilakka at 64-65HRC would be amazing.

Re: Nirvana Titanium

Look at the video.....everyone is having problems !!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=498w-iOcQkk And the ones who are suck ups to Spyderco say it's not really a problem, BUT IT IS !!

I'd absolutely be in for a Nilakka sprint in something that will take a super fine edge like 52100.

Re: The Manix XL

Thanks for this thread, it's reminded me to clean up my S90V XL. I don't carry it as much as I ought to.

I'd assume it comes apart the same way as Rassenti's other designs.

Re: A Little Nirvana(pic-heavy)

Is the blade in fact stone washed? It was mentioned in the Amsterdam video, the blade is bead blasted to match the (bead blasted) handle, and it *looks* as such in some pics. Both the blade and handle look to be stonewashed in the video by GPknives. http://i.imgur.com/slD7VsT.jpg Looks like a step ...

Re: Mantra or Mantra 2?

Does anyone know if Spyderco's HT target for M4 is still 62-64HRC? The factory edge on my Mantra 2 microchipped slightly (barely visible under a 10x loupe, but easily felt) while cutting cardboard boxes so I went to put a fresh edge on the knife starting with a 240 grit Shapton ceramic. The steel fe...
