Obviously HT is impossible to see and most manufacturers will not give out details but I guess it is similar within the same knife manufacturer's product range ... but it would be very interesting to see how edge-angle affects the testing and also how similar the initial sharpness of each knife is ...

I hesitate to even ask this... What (if any) testing have you done to verify that HT processes or results (hardness) are in any way standardized between your samples? I have had testing shared with me that shows STRIKING differences in S30V owing a point or two in hardness alone. I tests real knive...

I don't want to go into it to deep because it would be a very negative post because of the hype it got and I have quite a bit of experience with S30V.

As a side note I am getting a Para 2. :)
It will be nice to see details.

Thanks, Vassili.

In my own testing S35VN did better than S30V and and it's noteworthy that a certain high end company will be switching from S30V to S35VN in the near future from what I heard. In my test it show much worse results (ZT-302, Buck 110 and Mule CPM S35VN: cut S30 S30 S35 000 015 020 010 001 025 030 020...

I really wish Spyderco would change from S30V to S35VN or one of the Carpenter Steels permanently.... I really wish Spyderco will stay away from CPM S35V wich perform worse then CPM S30V. CPM M4 performs better but not corrosion resistant, and there are quite a bit of not corrosion resistant simple...

You may shave with rolled edge, but if it whittle hair then it is OK for sure. And also it does not really require and additional effort to ...

Vassili, How do you REALLY feel on the topic? Do not hold back. LOL. Joking!

The only complaint I've heard is concerning sharpening which I've had some problems myself. Even so, I voted yes on this poll just to get my 2 cents counted. I'll just work on my sharpening technique or find out why I have problems with one knife and no problems with my other ZDP knife. Jack This i...

Vasilli Touching on an earlier point you made- I don't think that corrosion caused the difference in edge retention between 420 HC and H-1. The staining was on the flat of the blade, and not on the cutting edge, and any that appeared on the cutting edge was removed with the next cut. I have found t...

This thread has turned. It was about vg-10 vs rust resistance vs H1. Edge retention came in and it devolved from there. I too have a scientific bent due to my having studied physics seriously years ago. I appreciate Vassili's tests and give them merit for tests conducted in an environment as contro...

Thanks for MY compassion? You've been hassling people because they don't systematize their results. You've built a system, but have treated wrist pain as a static quantity, rather than a variable!
