Re: K390 Delica HRC?

Since my HRC testing of the Delica, I have used it on various materials. I haven't gotten crazy with it, but I haven't babied it during use either. I have pushed it a bit, within reason for a 2.5mm thick blade, to test edge stability. Very thick shipping cardboard, a cloth backed rubber material whe...

Eric said he was going to fit it into the Queue for US production. Will still be a while though as we're pretty backed up.

Re: HRC Database

The DLT Delica OD green DLC cruwear tested at 62.1 HRC. Good stuff. :cool: Are you getting any readings for the rest of the current K390 Seki series, besides the Delica? I plan on getting the k390 endura when it is released. I may get the k390 endela as well. I am going to test everything I get now...

Re: HRC Database

I will definitely be using and testing it this week. I may have one of the other guys re check it to make sure.I have had 2 different police 4s and one was right at 66 and the other 64.2. Most of the Police 4s were right in the 65 range from what I have seen. The PM2 I had in k390 was 63 something, ...

Re: HRC Database

I just got a Delica k390. The results were a bit surprising. It was poked twice, with the results of 66.4 and 66.5 HRC

Re: Shaman Rex45 Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

Hello SteveMidwest. Mine is also from the LS batch. I was suprised to see the LS date code as well. I have one from the ET run , but I haven't opened it yet. If I decide to keep the ET Shaman I will test it as well.

Re: Shaman Rex45 Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

The heat treat on the rex 45 seems to be very consistent across the board. I tested my orange Shaman today and it was 67.3.

Re: Rivers Edge Cutlery Mystery Exclusive (DLC 10V/Coyote Brown G10 Paramilitary 2)

Missed the first drop but pumped I grabbed a satin on this one... Love the grind lines on these & the rex45 models. They do both have very distinct grinds- and the 10v PM2 is also the sharpest knife I've received to date with the Rex45 Manix a close second. 3F227363-2959-4337-B74C-172FFF609094.jpeg...

Re: REC PM2 CPM 10v Hardness

Thank you Spyderco for getting the hardness where it needs to be. Not just the harness, the overall HT is spot on. It cuts like a beast and takes an incredibly aggressive edge. This is my new favorite. I am very pleased with this one.

It appears that KC is down to 68 remaining.
How many did they start with?

I'm not sure. I haven't heard a number produced anywhere for this model.
Since posting a few minutes ago, they have sold down to 44 now.

Re: More 4V anyone?

Spyderco is killing it on the 4v. I have one of the 4v Shamans, and it has been performing incredibly well. Great edge retention and edge stability. I had it tested in our QC lab today, and it hit 65.2! I saw the Para 3 models were 64+, and they didn't hold back on these either.
