Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

20CV is very well balanced, would like to see it become the new base model steel. Would also love to see a salt M2 in 2020, if they could make that a goal. Vanax preferably, but LC200N will do. Can always sprint the exotics down the road. I think with tip up, and compression it'll sell better, only ...

Anyone else hoping for a BBS exclusive Military in k390? Provided it's on the newer M2 model with the Compression lock? I'm in! Better yet, hope to see a vast selection of different steels being offered on the newer upcoming model, too include other dealers and distributor exclusives. Finally being ...

Still kicking myself for not getting the Stretch 1 when it was around.

It's still around if you're willing to pay their shipping.

Re: Sharpmaker rod maintenance

Oxalic Acid is the magic ingredient in BKF, that isn't found in comet, or ajax iirc

So if you cannot find BKF you can try ZUD, or just type Oxalic Acid on amazon and get the stronger version in a 2 lb bag. Just wear gloves with the stronger version and have good ventilation.

Re: Newbie with knife steel question...

Hi Constructor, I think you're going to love the PM2 Model. Now it's just a matter of deciding on a steel. As Ferider and others have echoed M390, 20CV, and 204P are all pretty much the same steel from different foundry's. The Bento Box blue M390 is what I chose for that use years ago, in the hot an...

Re: Bento Box Something Something....

Although I already had this steel in the police model, much prefer the compression lock over the back lock. Had to cave and grab it. Doesn't look like these are as appealing to the flippers (lower profit margins), thank God! So for users that love the PM2, this is a premium catch, and available for ...

The second set is the...

Hey Sal,
Did Masahiro buy Daido? or Vice versa? Asking because Zvi's steel database has it listed as Masahiro, and if it's incorrect I want to shoot him that correction.

Voted "Definitely". Vivi if you design the prototype, I have a feeling more people would get onboard. Totally not trying to put you on the spot, as I do not know your CAD skills or your desire for such an endeavor. I just think if you had those skills or simply the help of someone with CAD skills, y...
