Re: DLC and rust.

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

Perhaps I should have phrased my sentiment about this situation differently. Or not comment at all. Look, I wasn't there. Who knows what happened before or off camera. I will say this. Neither of them were prepared for the situation they have put themselves in. They locked themselves in a store wit...

Where I live now (rural Georgia), if you want brag about a pm2 you'll likely run into a situation like this https://youtu.be/WWl8EbNN8NM?t=25s Funny because I used to carry a PM2 to work and a co-worker would pull that on me.

@Pelagic Excellent company have purchased from twice, went with them due to the same issues you saw concerning Atoma: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/search-results.html?query=Atoma&x=0&y=0&vwcatalog=chefknivestogo The best way to describe them is as diamond files.

Re: DLC and rust.

For anyone interested, Wikipedia cover the basics of this material pretty nicely for once: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond-like_carbon , the sources at the end will go more in dept about it, mostly manufacturing methods. This really sticks out: "For example a coating of only 2 μm thickness of...

Re: DLC and rust.

Sal himself stated in a post (that I cannot be bothered to hunt down) that DLC was NOT to prevent rust, that in fact could actually hide it, till it became a problem (or something to that effect). I was always under the impression from various posts, that DLC's benefit was to help hold oil in place...

Re: DLC and rust.

Chris P Bacon, no I have done nothing to the blade. I'm going to attempt to clean it when I have time and go from there. Like I said previously I may ospho it then lube it or use tuff glide. Not sure yet.

Re: DLC and rust.

What dedication, thanks! Looks like those spots are definitely the first sign of rust. No problem. Your experience piqued my interest, especially because there are such disparate theories here about the effects DLC has on enhancing corrosion resistance. It seems the most accurate answer is that DLC...

So basically DLC is like a hardened sponge. Good info. Should've oiled it! Share your experiences! St Nick's exclusive owners especially, have you seen any rust? What do you feel about DLC? I just pulled out my St Nick's Lil Native exclusive and sprinkled some water and salt on the blade. I'll repor...

Re: I almost missed out - K390 PM2

Good catch. I can't wait to use mine. But I need to treat it with tuff glide first. And even then, I'll likely only carry it when I'm away from the coast, and then it still has to compete with the 4V Shaman.

Re: DLC and rust.

I had to be honest and choose the last option...."I haven't exposed my knives to a corrosive environment yet". I have several knives with DLC and I certainly use them but it's not very humid where I'm now living (DFW area) compared to where I'm from (N. IL corn country). I'm not the outdoorsman tha...

Re: DLC and rust.

I wouldn't be surprised if we find that DLC does something like add a corrosion resistance point to a blades "score". Like if s30v is 8.5/10, DLC would make it 9.5—10/10, while 4V maybe a 2/10, and DLC makes it a 3/10. I realize that is a vastly oversimplified way of looking at it, but yeah. Curious...

Re: DLC and rust.

Where’s the option on the poll that says DLC wasn’t put on knives for the purpose of corrosion resistance? That's common knowledge, this is more about personal experiences in regard to corrosion resistance since there are varying cases of such. I figured this goes without saying and wouldn't make f...
