Hurry, Shawn. My finger’s cramping up from hitting ‘refresh.'
I ran out of BESS media, I ordered more.

Re: CPM SPY27 | Edge Performance

I have some knives for us to compare the CPM SPY 27 to.



Here are the hardness values of some knives I'll be testing the Spy27 Para3 against.

VG-10 59.0rc
S30V 60.1rc
S45VN 61.5rc

Spy27 62.0rc.



I'll share the test results and a video when done.

Re: CPM SPY27 | Edge Performance

I just purchased a S30V Para 3 in G10 to do a side by side comparison with. It should allow us to see what Spy27 offers with more context. Thanks for doing this. I appreciate eliminating all the variables possible... knife/geometry/sharpening, current version, etc. Thank you, I picked up an S45vn P...

Re: No Elmax Knives from Spyderco?

I got to use and sharpen a friends blade in Elmax, and was pretty impressed with the steel as an overall package. Sharpened easily, finishes pretty nice at higher grits, holds an edge decently. Not stellar in any one regard like Maxamet with edge retention, but not bad. Looking at Larrin’s data it ...

CPM SPY27 | Edge Performance

I did an "out of box" test in a video here https://youtu.be/8mOpYQPICRg 62rc, stroped the factory edge and measured it for angles and sharpness on the BESS tester as seen in the video. I put my own edge on it using some metallic cbn stones to set the edge and resin diamond waterstones to polish foll...

Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

I just spent 45 min in the garage cutting cardboard from my recycling bin into tiny pieces. Had a nice pile on the floor when I stopped. The factory edge held up well and was still going strong. I tested on some phone book paper and it was snagging a little but not bad. Then I whittled on some hard...

Ready for HT. These are the next steels that will be tested. Thanks to Spyderco for sending the Maxamet, Rex45 a...

Good stuff, Shawn. Many thanks, (again), to you and Larrin for edumucating us reprobates.
Thanks Elliott, I'm happy folks like yourself appreciate the time and work that goes into something like this.

Does anyone have feedback from using the steel? I’m curious how it compares to some of the standard options like S30V and VG10.
