My final tally is that I ordered 53 of these and 41 of them went to other people. They are now future buyers of the next steel that otherwise were only mildly interested before. Once they get one in their hands and finish it, they're excited.
Also, we've been generously treated to some premium steels lately. If you always eat steak, how good is it after a while? The 9CR18 seems to be a good steel, don't get me wrong. But it also serves to highlight the insane goodness of S90V and friends. You gotta have a mix folks.
I'm looking forward to the next in the series. I only hope that we have this program for another few years.

Yep you're wrong. Lots of inferior Chinese knife blanks sell for more.These will end up selling for $35+ so it's a great deal.nathan310 wrote:$20 for a chinese blank never seemed that great of a deal to me. But then again I've been wrong before.
