Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

52100, nice carbon steel with great edge stability
AEB-L, nice stainless steel with great edge stability
M2, wear resistant steel with good edge stability.

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

I found the same thing with my Spyderco Merlin and Byrd Meadowlark 2 Hawkbill. I really like the more rounded serrations on the Byrd vs the Spyderco one. I recently gifted the Byrd to my neighbor so I need to get another one, and I really like EDC'ing the Merlin as a secondary knife.

Re: What is your dominant hand / forum statistics

I am a little ambidextrous as I only do some things with my left hand, but I do favor my right hand, so I consider myself right handed.

Re: Super Blue

I would like a Para3 LW in Super Blue, and a Straight Spine Stretch. Also it would be interesting to see a Wharncliff Delica with a Strech spine, Rescue spine, or a straight spine.

Re: designs - evolution - lifting

Sal, I think it depends on what your goals are along with your perspective. Also, there is the whole issue of some IP not being protected is some cases, while others being hyper-protected due to cronyism is an issue. Open Source works for some things, but not for everything.

Re: The Spyderco Rescue Designer? History?

Rescue JR in ATS-55 / G-10 and the Rescue 79 I'm so glad you made mention of the ATS-55 era. Yeah I know that Sal has said on occasions that they proved VG-10 to be better which is why they dropped ATS-55. But for some really strange reason I've always liked ATS-55 in spite of that decision >> espe...

Re: Shawn - Thanx much

Shawn,
I really liked the stones you let me try out. I noticed that the CBN polished more than the Diamond from the ones I tried. I am a sucker for a stone that polishes well.

I like bigger knives so I'm out on this one. Make an Endela or Endura, or even a Stretch and I'll be all over it!
I was going to say the same thing. It still looks like a great knife.

Re: The Endela.

I don't have an Endela, but I have been thinking of getting one, or maybe a Stretch (The staight spine Stretch really has my attention, I wish it was in Super Blue, V-Toku 2, 52100, or AEB-L. I do like VG10, that whole class of steels is great for EDC). I have the Delica/Endura clone from Benchmade,...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

Where does AEB-L stack against Elmax, CPM-154, and S45VN as far as a "tough" stainless blade? AEB-L is far tougher than any of those steels you listed, since it has a lower carbide volume, while the others have a pretty high carbide volume. Toughness is overrated as a necessary quality for a pocket...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

I wonder which mid-high carbide steel (CPM 154 CM, CTS XHP, S30V, S35VN, S45VN, ELMAX) is the easiest steel to get a good production HT of around 60-62 HRC, closer to 61-62HRC if possible.

Re: How many knives do you typically carry?

Up until two days ago, I was carrying eight knives, as I was comparing different small fixed blades for edc made by custom knife makers. I put three of them away, so I could focus on one at a time, comparing them to my production blades I carry. It is hard to compare more than 2 or 3 knives at the t...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Impressions: 1. These stones are not flat. 2. These stones are worthless for flattening and polishing flats. 3. These stones load up with metal to swiftly to be used for anything other than touch-ups. 4. These Stones are very fine and should be just fine for edge maintenance if a high degree of pol...
