DLC and rust.

We're super mixed on this as a community. Some people swear by the corrosion resistance of DLC coating, and some people have reported issues with rust (and have provided proof). Could it be that not all coatings are the same? Is there variation between the thickness of the coatings? Are all of spyde...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Sometime soon I'm going to order coarser stone for finishing my edges. Have you found a steel or family of steels that don't do as well with a coarser edge? No. It's something I've been thinking about this year. You hear a lot about how X steel likes a toothy edge, X steel likes a polished edge. I ...

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

I'm very surprised at seeing that blade! I wonder the same thing as you David. Thanks for posting that Pelagic, I've never seen DLC looking like that before. No problem. And I am not exaggerating whatsoever. 3 or 4 days of carry in cold weather. Didn't cut anything. Thanks for the photos. I agree t...

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

Like I said, pictures don't do it justice. Keep in mind I never used this knife NOR did I sweat. I was freezing my *** off for the 3-4 days I carried it. It still has a great factory edge. That's crazy. I think I'd go full on beater mode with it and let it go. Otherwise you can probably sell it for...

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

I'll post pictures when I can. Working nights right now. I know Cold Steel's DLC has never rusted through, but that's with XHP, not nearly as corrosive as 4V.

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

I've always used the blue Flitz cream. I've never tried the liquid that Rick shows in the OP. I'll have to buy a bottle of that and see how well it works. My 20+ year old tube of Flitz cream was starting to get low. So I picked up some Blue Magic metal polish when I was at the auto parts store one ...

4V with DLC showed rust on or through the DLC, or just the edge?
Through the DLC. about 1/3 of the blade has rust spots on it near the tip (both sides). Pictures don't do it justice. Haven't carried the knife until I can remedy the problem somewhat.

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

My 4V Shaman rusted after about 3 to 4 days on the beach. But, I was enclosed in a cab of a bulldozer the whole time, so I'm sure it wasn't as bad as being outside. I surely didn't sweat. My sweat CAN cause knives to corrode, but my experiences with m4, cruwear, and even s30v, s90v, s110v (and other...

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

I hate feeling the blade of my 4V Shaman and feeling the surface rust all over it. I'm guessing there's no way to get rid of it without removing the DLC in the process? I may just OSPHO it and then tuff glide the blade or paint it. The only reason I'm disappointed is that I've never really used the...

Re: K390 PM2 | Testing

I'm sure Vancron SC would do great. 15V would likely be a monster. Anything that can reach high hardness without being chippy is likely going to do well.
