Something in the middle like CPM 154 would be nice. :)
This! Mid priced option with a tougher steel would be great, cpm154 if it’s stainless, cruwear/4v/etc

Is it possible to get in the $80-$120 range?

Re: Who else wants a SE Lil'Matriarch Salt in H1 ?!

Thank you! I didn’t know z finit is the same as lc200n. Where is Larrin with toughness data on H1 vs LC?? Like everyone else, I am really curious. I don’t recall seeing H1 on his previous toughness charts Larrin has tested LC200N but I think it was under name Z-finit. For stainless steel, it has sup...

I need a little advice fellas I found my grandfathers old machete the other day, and the blade is half decent. I can polish it up and get it ready to rock, but the old plastic handle is toast. Sheath is toast too. Does anyone know a shop that will make custom handles and a new sheath for it? I am gu...

Re: Skinning knives, gift

I know steels pretty well, but for processing would you prefer zdp for edge retention of the toku for ease of sharpening? I assume zdp as chipping is over rated and edge retention is king in the field

Skinning knives, gift

With the Phil Wilson knives gone, what is the best skinning knife I can get for a friends 50th Birthday? He is a big hunter. Fixed preferred, but a great folding options works too. Looking for a great steel, not necessarily maxamet but something that will process some serious deer. Budget $150-$300 ...

Have you tried to open an Ikuchi with wet hands?

Seriously, try it. After washing your hands, with your fingers partially dry, I can not do it. It seems like 100% dry hands are required to operate this knife.

I love the knife, and it’s a gentleman folder not a yard knife. So it’s all good to me.

Just an odd observation...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

Look into a class of not being a victim at your local Community Center / YMCA / Sheriffs Office. I don't know the resources available to you. Anything you read is out the door when your adrenaline rises after initial contact with this bad guy. Proper training, properly practiced, is what gets you t...

Re: Toughness data

It seems odd cpm would list 10v’s toughness based on a 59 rc. Lower rc would mean a little higher toughness right? that seems misleading since its usually 63 rc +/-

Re: Toughness data

Larrin - do you believe the data the manufactures post? They say Cruwear has a 60ft-lb toughness and the chart that you have from your tests shows closer to 20-25ft-lb.

That seems like a big variance. Or, are large variances normal due to HT and RC changes in the steel tested?

Re: Toughness data

The rabbit hole gets deeper and deeper. I know about 0.0001% of the info that some of the guys/gals know on these forums, yet I know more then 99.99% of the general public. Between my normal job, most of my brain matter is dedicated to that data/info. So I only have minimal time to learn more about ...
