I've wanted to have several different Farid customs over the years but money always was tight or non existent. I absolutely love the idea of a super steel ( 10V is about as "super" as I need) Farid knife.
All the amazing steels he has tried have caught my attention over the years and made me want one more and more. I'd still love one of his T1 HSS knives ( 18% Tungsten!), like to try D3, am unsure about the Rex 121 monsters, etc.
I don't believe there is a steel that can intimidate Farid. Imagine grinding steel with the Carbide fraction of Rex 121 and an annealed hardness of , was it rc 50? Simply mind boggling some of the things he has done. Farid and Phil Wilson are without doubt my two favorite Custom very high performance steel guys. Phil for thin, functional fixed blades and Farid for Ti/Super steel Folders.
I've been ready.
