Re: How much are you willing to spend on a Chinese made knife?

I voted "none". I have two Taichung models that I looked at and put down several times before I bought them. It was hard for me to get past the made in Taiwan thing. Only after realizing the quality of craftsmanship, was I able to pull the trigger, it still bothers me a little ! I recently purchased...

Re: Any corrosion or patina on REX45 so far?

I had one very small spot of surface rust right over the "Golden Colorado" stamp on my PM2, no idea why & haven't had any problems since.

Re: 52100 vs other tool steels

I tend to like high carbon and semi-stainless tool steels like M4, Rex 45, 52100, etc... 52100 takes a keen edge like none I've seen.

I'm pretty excited to use the ZDP-189.

Re: Surface Rust on DLC Blade

Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Can't be sure without seeing in person, but it looks to me like some of the rusted areas are pitted. If I had to guess, I would say this is going to occur again. Like you, I am surprised that it happened in the first place. Anxious to hear what others have to say.

Re: Magnetic Blade

Thanks for all the replays, as of today the knife seems ok, no more magnetic pull. No idea what caused it or what made it go away ? Maybe it's haunted, LOL.

Magnetic Blade

I was touching up my Para3 M4 blade on an extra fine diamond stone this evening and noticed that the blade or stone felt magnetic ? I grabbed another knife with a maxamet blade, hit the stone a few times and nothing, no pull. Tried the M4 blade again and felt the same magnetic pull. I then held a pa...

Re: Burnt Orange Rex 45 para 3

Liquid Cobra,
The dye job looks great. I've been thinking about trying it on natural G-10. I'd to get to an olive drab or brown. How durable is it ?
