Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

A fine grain nitride steel would be good for this purpose, no?

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

I'm surprised there isn't a CPM version of the foundry to celebrate this new steel High fine edge sharpness retention (a la super blue?) has me interested I just finished reading Shaun's post about the steel - yeah, spy 27 isn't super interesting in a pure wear resistance standpoint - but how many t...

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

Dymondwood/pakkawood feels like very fine finished satin plastic - you don't really feel the wood grain - I happen to like it a lot

How does it wear though? When it gets nicks, does it start chunking? I guess one shouldn't drop it

Re: Caly 3 love?

The caly 3.5 packs a lot of blade into a small handle - would like to see it updated in a dressed down (okay, just not slippery carbon fiber) form - the zdp/CF makes the price of admission a bit high

Calypso Jr will always have a place in my heart as my first Spyderco

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

Concerning the scales, I really wish U.S. manufacturers would look to the U.S. Timber industry. Rosewood is a broad statement of foreign products so no one really knows what tree species it really came from or from what country. The U.S. contains the most desired hardwood timber species on the plan...

Re: Super Blue

I should get an affordable kitchen knife in super blue

I know people carried 10xx steel carbon pocket knives in the past, but I'm weary of corrosion in the field. If I cut something wet, how do I prevent rust? Just wipe it?

Centofante could use a bit of modernization (shrink the bug, double sided clip, a more modern texture on the handle/just carbon fiber the slabs, etc)

Re: Design details that are deal breakers

I'm also one that's not a fan of grips that are far from start of the edge - it's weird using a police or military from the non choil grip Hooks at the butt end of knives occasionally bother me.

Re: ZDP-189 - Overrated or Super Steel?

ZDP has a reputation for holding a fine edge better than vanadium carbide centric steels - have other steels caught up in this regard? If you take, say s90v to a high polish with abrasives that can cut the vanadium carbide properly, can you regain some fine edge holding?

Re: What ever happened to Elmax

Yeah, m390 starts at $99 - but what's the point of mfgs just leave it under 60hrc?

Elmax superclean would be a name that sells thousands :D
