I've actually never heard of a reuben, is this an east coast thing or am I just really out of the sandwich loop?

Now that sounds good! I should look into finding some local blueberry jam, everything I find in regular stores is made with high fructose corn syrup, which I'd rather avoid when possible.

It holds an edge longer than most steels and it's tough. CPM-S30V has been my favorite steel for about 3 years. VG-10 is my second favorite.
That's pretty much exactly how I feel. I know it's not the best steel in the world, but if I weren't allowed to see the labels and had to pick a steel based purely on the experience of using it, I'd probably end up with S30V.

Don't let it get to you, that's his response whenever anyone says their experience with sharpening a steel is different. It's classic trolling, though I'm still not totally convinced he does it on purpose. Maybe I'm trying too hard to think the best of him (or, as he calls it, making a personal attack on him due to his claimed ethnicity—also classic).

I've heard that some of the latest crunchy peanut butters address this by spraying it into nitrogen so as to rapidly cool it into particles of uniform composition before the bits can wander and create substantial inconsistencies. These particles are then compressed back into a more consistent whole than can be achieved by traditional methods.
