Re: How’s the Native Salt treating you?

Mine was stiff at first but broke in well. No play on mine.

Re: Poll: Preferred steel choice(s) for a Manix 2 XL Sprint or Exclusive?

A 4v xl would be something I want enough to pay flipper pricing for if I screwed up enough to miss it on release like I did the 4v shaman.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I decided on the k390 pm2 over the crucarta shaman. K390 in just a much more useful steel for me, and I already have the m4 shaman. Not being a fan of micarta certainly helped this decision though :p .

Re: Newbie with knife steel question...

The s110v manix lightweight would be one of the least expensive and most corrosion/wear resistant option. The knife has pinned contruction and no liners, which bothers some people, but works fine imo. The m390 pm2 would be an easier to sharpen and slightly tougher but less wear resistant and more ex...

Heck, just run it in blurple/s110v like most of the other full sized Golden folders and people will be rejoice. We need more variety!

Re: Bento Box Something Something....

Got my order in. Guess I’ll finally see if I can grow to love the pm2. I’ll definitely be sanding some contouring onto the scales either way.

Re: Bento Box Something Something....

This is the first time I’ve been tempted to buy a pm2 at all. I much prefer leaf shaped blades like the manix but the k390 is calling me. If I do fold, I’ll pick up one of the m390 blades as well.

Re: Have you found the one?

For me, it’s the manix xl and shaman equally, closely followed by the zdp/cf caly 3.5. I have to force myself to carry my other primary knives or I wouldn’t carry them at all.

Re: K390: Brittle? Hard to sharpen?

My pma11 mule sharpens as easily as s35vn or 20cv to me. No difficulty whatsoever, and much easier than s110v.

This comment, the mention of more k390, along with the multiple shaman variants have made my year.

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

Of those I’ve tried, Lc200n, Maxamet, and zdp-189. Lc200n because it’s tough as dirt, rustproof(in most circumstances), super easy to sharpen, and wear resistant enough for most occasions. Maxamet because it holds an edge for longer than anything else I’ve tried, but is easy to sharpen as it doesn’t...

Re: Very Sharp

Only one that comes to mind at the moment is the Sustain. 20cv (crucible’s version of M390) steel and 6” blade.

Dammit, I missed it because my internet had a hiccup while trying to check out! I really wanted to try the 4v too...Oh well, I'll just get the Crucarta Shaman when that gets released.

From what I’ve heard, there wasn’t a CPM Cruwear mule; it was non powdered cruwear. I could be wrong though.

Re: LC200N Dealer Exclusive

Dunno. 4v, M390, or CPM Cruwear maybe? Not sure if there was anything in any of them prior to exclusives.
