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

:( Yes please lay off each other guys. This forum is not the place and besides, there is an ignore feature. Let's keep this (and other) discussions about knives! I agree. I just want to talk about steel and knives. I took a break from the forums and didn't expect to be antagonized repeatedly as soo...

lol, already threatening another self imposed exile. "pretensiously arrogant" sounds like someone really upset you!

I hope you don't leave. You make this place more entertaining.
I don't know why you like making several threads all about me. Leave me alone.

While I as the OP welcome all conversation even going off topic the blatant advertisement for a company / maker other than Spyderco raises my Hackles.

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

And finally, do you agree with Crucible that CPM 20CV at 58 HRC (while this might not be optimal) has as much wear resistance as CPM m4 at 63 HRC ? Or are they over-selling ? https://photos.smugmug.com/Picture-a-Week/2019/January-2019/n-T8nww7/i-HQ6q8tk/0/6d9917c1/L/i-HQ6q8tk-L.jpg Thanks, Roland. ...

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

I dunno, I don't have any S35VN, I just enjoy watching a good pissing contest. First of all, I'd appreciate it if you'd lay off me a bit. I'm not trying to stir up anything like you. I was giving you an opportunity to say something on topic. Secondly, I've used both steels in several different mode...

http://www.reactiongifs.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/THISGONBGUD.gif Lol, sorry it was so uneventful. What's your opinion on the matter? Debates over "which steel is better" between 2 of the most similar steels in the cutlery world seem borderline useless imo, especially considering production he...

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

Naperville, be ready for a lot of people to jump on you for making this suggestion. This is a touchy subject. But at least youtubers are showing tons of HRC data points these days. So the number of secrets is shrinking.

Re: High HRC is not equal high wear resistance

I find it hard to believe that Rex 45 at 66 HRC has noticeably less edge retention than cruwear at 61-62 HRC. That is an extreme difference in hardness. I know HRC isn't everything, so whoever is waiting to bash me as if I believe that, calm down. But cut tests almost always reveal that HRC and edge...

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

What is shocking and always has been to me is why Spyderco never transitioned it’s main production models to S35VN as Chris Reeve did. By all accounts S35VN is a superior steel and easier to work with as well. What have you seen that makes this your opinion? I see no difference in the steels in use...
