I'd be curious if that's true of CPM REX 45 models as well or if Golden kept them closer to M4 in hardness.

Spyderco's CPM REX 45 has been consistently measured at around 66 HRC I believe. Considerably higher than their CPM M4.

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

To thin out the edge and remove a nasty chip. Took it down to 15dps on the CBN rods. After this photo was taken I ran it on the browns around 50 passes per side to smooth out the scratches just a bit. Then applied a 20dps microbevel, which feels nice and sticky sharp. Interested in how it will cut ...

So after I handled the knife quite a bit, I like it more and more. What I noticed I like is the lack of jumping on the spine of the blade and the choil. The pocket clip is also quite strong.

What kind of handle is that?

Hi new to the forums.

I’ve been carrying the Dragonfly 2 Wharnie in VG-10 for a little over a month now for work. I work in grocery and I absolutely love that little monster. Very capable knife.

Welcome to the forum RussC!
Great choice on the knife. :)

Re: HRC Database

Anyone get their Province tested yet? I'm curious to see if Spyderco ran them as hard as their CPM 4V folders.

Re: What angle do you sharpen at?

For me it depends on the knife, the steel, and what I feel like doing. I reprofiled my Police 4 to about 10dps, but normally I stick around 14-15 dps.

Re: Just the brown SM flats

Oh sorry one other thing... Cleaning the stones? How often and if I switch steels should I clean no matter what? Another thing If you sharpen say for example H1 after M4 without cleaning the stones won’t you be grinding those M4 steel particles into the H1, then later could those particles rust? Cl...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

So if I’m understanding you correctly if the sharpie on the shoulder of the edge is being removed but not on the point the Apex and the angle is too acute Well, it means whatever angle you are sharpening at is too acute. If the marker is only being removed at the shoulder of the bevel (where it mee...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

So I apologize but I have some really dumb questions. Do all Spyderco knives have a 40° inclusive edge from the factory thusly necessitating the use of the 40° side of the Sharpmaker to maintain that edge? If I use a sharpie on the blade and that sharpie is not removed within four or five passes am...

That's an amazing picture GoldenSpydie! Here is my submission for the contest. Since getting my first Lil Native a short time ago, I have been impressed with the tough, robust construction of these little knives. They are truly the essence of compact strength and ruggedness, well able to take on any...

If you take the RC so high chipping becomes an issue, edge retention takes a dramatic dive :)
The question was about wear resistance, not edge retention, but yeah, I guess the real answer would be, "it depends".
Still, I wouldn't call it an out-and-out myth.

Otherwise a good thread; here is a Myth to add to your list: - High HRC is equal high wear resistance Carry on :) This is a myth? Perhaps you mean that higher HRC doesn't automatically mean steel A will have higher wear resistance than steel B? There are other factors but HRC most certainly does ha...

Below I listed some "knife-myths" I sometimes come across (more generally on the internet, not so often, but still also, on this forum). These are myths I believe, or to put it better, definitely found out, at least for (just) ME, are not true at all. The intention of this thread is NOT to argue ov...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

The last knife I sharpened was my CPM Cru-Wear Delica. I used my Hapstone V7 sharpening system, set at about 15 dps, starting and finishing with just the 240 grit Venev bonded diamond stone. It was shaving sharp but not tree topping, until I spent maybe a minute or so stropping it on basswood (14 mi...
