Re: Knife Vs. Pork Covered in Jeans

Re: M390 CTS-204P 20CV :) Hype Steel

So back to the original topic.... soft M390. Dave Warren of Tuya Knives is getting some positive attention today on Instagram. His company had been selling M390 advertised at 59-61. His company saw JcoolG19's HRC test numbers of their knives at 57 hrc and he called the factory in China and had them ...

Re: High HRC is not equal high wear resistance

Carbide volume, grain size, heat treat protocol, geometry.....so many factors. High HRC is just one variable among many. One 60 HRC knife is definitely not automatically equal to another 60 HRC knife with different variables. Got to look at the whole picture :D

Re: "HRC as advertised." Who is accurately listing HRC?

Some companies do advertise their HRC ranges. Some don't. We have the HRC database here on the forum. It doesn't cover everything but you can get an idea. No one from Spyderco has asked me not to keep the list, or expressed displeasure with me posting it. If they did I would respect their wishes and...

Re: AFI Performance Flash Batch

K390 would be worth the wait. It's a great steel, it performs superbly in the Police 4 platform. I would love to see what it could do with a high hollow and .010bte grind. An inspired choice Sal.

Sal's a true class act and has lead by example on here the forum. Even when he's not talking, he's listening and it shows.

Re: M390 CTS-204P 20CV :) Hype Steel

Errors in testing are absolutely possible. But if that were the case wouldn't their testing of others steels be all over the place too? Wouldn't a low test be the outlier, not a common phenomenon that happens only when testing m390? Why doesn't the M4 they test ever come out 10 points low? I can't s...

Re: AFI Performance Flash Batch

This is about "performance", not "exclusivity", imho... Delica first. It's a known quantity, so the differences will be available to everyone to evaluate. The platform is cost-effective enough that people will use them, instead of hoarding them, and we can see if the option has merit for other plat...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

....... Folks would be surprised with 15v if they only had the access and knowledge to see and use. M390 gets a lot of fan fair but it's not the best even with a hardness bump and special protocol. However it's so incredibly popular in the community that M390 doesn't need to be explained as much as...

Re: Heat Treatments any verification?

Heat treat, steel, geometry, quality, functional design, aesthetics, fit and finish. All factors. Heat treat is just one of several factors that make a good knife. I love that we have a behind the edge database, and I love the hrc database. Are either of them 100% accurate? No. But they can give you...
