Lol, well if you want to charge me without answering my questions, I suggest sticking to selling knives.

Re: 3V or 4V Steel in a folder.

Where would mild carbon steels like 1045 stack up to those steels in toughness? No, the alloy additions in S5, A8mod etc helps the steel by preventing brittle structures from forming in there absence. The mechanics are explained in depth with Larrin's articles, I highly recommend giving it a throug...

Re: No POLICE

I'd probably buff it off with a dremmel with a buffing bit/attachment and diamond compound. Then just refinish the entire blade.

Re: 3V or 4V Steel in a folder.

Shawn, so 52100 maxes out at 63 essentially? Where does 3V max? 61.5-62? What would be the differences in performance? 52100 is an art, I'd like to geek out on it and get it harder and more stable but I'm focused on steels that are built to work at higher hardnesses.

Re: My Native 5 Maxamet

If recommend finishing on diamond (or CBN) anywhere from 600-2000 grit and some brief stropping. A highly polished edge is fine for pushcutting, but it will take a while to obtain and isn't ideal for all edc tasks. Ending on 1000-2000 grit and some stropping will pushcut just fine and slice a lot be...

Re: H1

Short serrated blades are less practical for most people's uses. Serrated blades are made for draw cuts. The dragonfly platform begs for a steel that excels at pushcutting. Unless you're like me and occasionally need toughness, I'd look for a model in LC200N.

Re: Advantages of 4 " (plus) blades?

Vivi brought up good points.

In my irrelevant experience, cutting extra thick rope essentially requires a blade the size of an Endura or larger. And I also cannot stress how convenient larger handles are for extended use (especially with gloves).

Research it. And yes I've used k390.
Don't the mules run a bit harder? Either way, K390 is no slouch and has excellent edge strength.

The intros to Pete's videos are gold.
Shouldn't be much harder than the police, which is close to 64.

Re: More K390?

This is probably the best steel, all around, that spyderco has ever offered. I like M4 a lot because at the hardness it's offered at it is a tougher option than k390, but k390 from a high performance standpoint has it all (aside from corrosion resistance). More k390 is always good. What makes you s...

Re: A question about edge bevel

Not once did I refer to edge finish..... Push cutting (polish) ability and slicing ability (toothy) correlate to edge finish. With Geometry, you would want them thin either way. Thinner always cuts better but requires a better user to use it. A polished edge is thinner but it's doesn't apply to the...
