Re: Poll: more CBBL

What are the springs made out of? I've never owned one long enough to know if it was an issue in regard to rust/corrosion.

Re: How good was AUS-10?

AUS10 = VG-10. Heat treat determines which is better.

Re: K390 in classic models

While steel variation is great, it is arguably more important that spyderco is constantly improving their heat treat (although they don't speak of it). Rockwell hardness tests on youtube demonstrate this. K390 is one of the best options available, but I am ignorant to pricing of steel. 10v would be ...

Re: Poll for Folding MULE - UKPK

If someone wanted a folding mule project, you'd probably want to suggest a popular and relatively affordable model. Maybe we'll see how the Endela does. The Endura would be perfect if it was made in both Seki City AND Golden. Spyderco can't be offering 20 different steels in the Subvert, for example...

Re: Spyderco 4v is 65hrc

Nearly 65 HRC... is that actually desirable? That's just one test preformed at one point on one blade that is DLC coated. One tenth of a point isn't worth the word "nearly" to me. It was 65hrc. BBB has shown us time and time again how 4v at 65hrc performs, it's plenty tough for almost any task whil...

Re: Which leather strop?

I'm sure some thin, firm kangaroo leather would be nice, but an old belt epoxy'd to a 1x4 would work too. Just use good compound. The softer the leather the softer your pressure should be. If the leather is firm and your pressure is light, use the same angle you do in sharpening. If you have a habi...

Is that the St Nick's Knives exclusive?
Yes.

And on the subject of DLC, from what I understand it can POTENTIALLY make a small difference, but not usually. And when it does effect results, it typically reduces the HRC number (making the steel appear slightly softer). I'm no expert though.

Spyderco 4v is 65hrc

Just saw a video with official Rockwell results of the burgundy pm3 4v exclusive. 64.9hrc!

More 4v would be nice.

Yeah, this. I'd probably do a sheepsfoot for a quick fix that leaves options open for future modification if you change your mind.

If you are a serious knife user, you will notice a difference. FYI, most people here are not serious knife users. They just like spyderco knives. Evil D is an actual user and you can value his advice. There's a few others too. A tenacious can do almost anything you want to do, unless you have a job ...

Re: K390 IS "The M4 Killer"

What is M4 truly capable of? Has anyone ever pushed it?

Disclaimer to Shawn: This is not a yes/no question, and no, I am not implying M4 is better than k390 in any way.

Re: K390 IS "The M4 Killer"

Has anyone used K390 in bladesports? Years ago it was all about M4, then 4v started to dominate. While I realize toughness matters more in bladesports than normal use, K390 could be tough enough. But a k390 competition chopper would be super expensive.

Re: Tip up or tip down carry

I like the ergos of tip down better on most models, but I rarely change clips. It just isn't that important to me. "Deployment" is just as fast either way. People can make a big issue out of anything.
