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?

CG
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.

Re: Sal the Micarta Man - Shaman flavors poll

I would absolutely love a Shaman in 65+hrc k390. It has an incredible toughness for its hardness and carbide volume. That extra hardness really helps with the fine edge retention. I really hope we see more k390 in other models, but I do think this in a Shaman would be one one of my favorites.

Re: New Arrival - K390 Ranger Green G10 PM2!

Well it seems these weren't pushed to the 64-65 hrc as on the Police 4. The test I just saw was 63.1 and 63.2 for the PM2. Still not bad. I believe I am going to jump on the police 4 now to compare on some rope.

Re: New Arrival - K390 Ranger Green G10 PM2!

This is a very well executed batch of PM2s based on my sample of 2, along with reports I have seen on them. Smooth action, centering is good, and the grinds are dead even. I have used the PMA11 mule for a while now, as well as K2 in10v ,so I was very excited to try out K390 since it typically runs a...
