Re: Sandrin Torino On-going EDC review (pic heavy)

Second that on wanting some SEM images of this stuff! The lapping films I got from Jende are very thin, with no discernable compressibility. And yes I matched the factory angle. I'm excited to see what you think of it if/when you get one! Thanks for the info Connor. :) I have this knife on my list ...

Re: Most underappreciated steel?

ZDP-189 I agree. It’s still my favourite steel of the high carbide volume stainlesses. I’ve been enjoying S90V recently in the Southfork and Proficient. I’d like to try it in a thin bladed folder like the Delica. I prefer S90V to S110V, and if I recall right, it actually had higher edge retention t...

Re: Sandrin Torino On-going EDC review (pic heavy)

Right!? I was super impressed with that edge he put on there with his new equipment. You have a lot of good stuff too, you should take the plunge on this knife too! You guys put some of the best edges on their knives that this forum sees. I appreciate the skill some of you guys have, it's awesome t...

Re: Street Beat Sprint - Let's Get Serious!

A tool steel like K390 would be my choice.

Not fussed about the handle, but canvas micarta would be cool.

Re: Which steel, edge angle, grit finish and sharpness level are you carrying today?

K390 Urban with a 9dps backbevel finished to 1200 grit FEPA-F Venev OCB, and a 15dps microbevel off the brown Sharpmaker rods. It barely takes any pressure to cause thick layers of pallet wrap to spring apart and glides smoothly through cardboard. Also a Superblue Stretch I just acquired. I measured...

Re: Pry Bar

Gayle Bradley 1 or the Pac Salt would be my contenders.

Definitely the Pac Salt if digging was involved.

You could regrind the tip to a chisel if you wanted.

Re: Sandrin Torino On-going EDC review (pic heavy)

Excellent rundown on your usage and sharpening Connor.

The sharpening is what I was concerned about.

I think I’ll have to get one of these to play with.

Re: CruWear on PM2?

Thank you for the info. I like the sound of CruWear being tougher on the tip! Although I once heard someone saying that he/she rolled the tip on a CruWear PM2 piercing the tape on an Amazon box. have you found that CruWear is prone to rolling/bending? No worries. :) I don’t know the details of that...

Re: DLC and the impact on blade tempers

It’s been mentioned here before that not all steels are suitable for DLC coatings, due to this issue, IIRC.

I’d like to see a reference for the claim about it adversely affecting eta carbides though.

Re: Manix 2 Chop????

Actually the "base" S30V Manix still comes with full liners. :) Yes, you’re right. I’d forgotten about that. Strange that the base model continues to be made with full steel liners. I’ve never felt my 52100 or Cruwear Manixes suffered from any lack of strength or rigidity from having skeletonised l...

Hi Norwest, Sorry, your second post was waiting to be approved when I replied above. Toughness is excellent, I’ve never experienced chipping and I run my knives with pretty thin, acute edges.
