Re: CPM M4 vs K390

M4 is a great all around steel. BBB however made it apparent that there is a huge difference in strength between M4 and K390. M4 is probably a tad tougher, but at 65 HRC (K390) vs 62-63 HRC (M4) that's expected. Sharpenability seems to be very similar imo, yet edge holding and apex strength is far i...

Does Norton make diamond hones? Or did the subject just get changed? Dang. Apologies. Yes they do.

As far as I recall, before the Caribbean came out, I think Sal said they actually took various prototype colours to different parts of the world, diving down to about 8 metres to test visibility and the bumblebee yellow and black contrast worked pretty well.
That makes sense. Thanks

Re: Change Caribbean Scales to Rastafarian colors?

It turns out people love the current scales and wouldn't dare adding some green and red. Evidently this model is to remain ARBITRARILY named the Caribbean. Lol Nothing arbitrary about it at all. Sal can correct me if I am wrong, but the Salt models are named after Oceans and Seas, not islands, cont...

Re: Smith stones vs DMT stones.

I put 15 years on a C and 15 on a XC, both still cut when they got misplaced. Given back then I was sharpening Gerber 400's, I know they last a long time.

Re: Smith stones vs DMT stones.

The topic required a little research! DMT stones were the first of its kind I do believe. They’ve patented their process of developing their products. Via how its made SCI/DSC network the diamond dust is put on steel plates and are embedded into the steel by scientific process making a permanent bo...

Re: Smith stones vs DMT stones.

I'd love to try some high quality diamond stones. DMT's work so well for my needs though. I'll probably get better feedback off the stones, and maybe a sharper edge on average. but I'm not sure if it's worth it. What is the cost breakdown generally for resin, metallic, and vitrified diamond or CBN w...

Re: Change Caribbean Scales to Rastafarian colors?

Does it come with a spliff? Ya mon! Is that why you don't like a certain color iteration? Historically, marijuana has always been heavily illegal in Jamaica. Despite the laws now which changed in 2015, it's still not smart to smoke there. Far from a stoner's paradise. I won't even go into what can ...

Slap on an emblematic ganja leaf and you’ll have your market ready-made. Irie, mon. Me? Not really into lifestyles. It wasn't about marijuana, but I'll admit, I did feel a few random stoners may suddenly take up an interest in knives if this change were to take place. As well as many people from th...

https://i.postimg.cc/HngSf0sM/rastafarian-colors-canvas.jpg What do you think? Since Rastafarian colors are Jamaican/Caribbean in origin, would this be very fitting/appropriate for the model and possibly expand the market for this knife, the salt series, and spyderco in general? I think the colors ...

Smith's cut decently at first, then wear out. DMT cuts better and lasts 10x longer.

Re: Let's discuss cheaper base models

Is LC200N cheaper than BD1N? I read that BD1N is capable of 63+ HRC, which is intriguing. It would be nice to know what stainless steels reach decent hardness levels without getting chippy.
