Year of the Giveaway - March
Posted: Sun Mar 17, 2013 2:28 pm
Tvenuto started a thread with the idea of having a giveaway every month this year. I was the winner of his giveaway, so I'm doing March.
Up for grabs is a used but in great condition Spyderco Native III:
To enter just post below telling us what your favorite steel is and why (or if you don't know/care just post up an "I'm in"), and your post number will be your entry number. I will use Random.org to pick a number on the 31st of this month.
Though not a requirement to enter, it'd be awesome that if you win, you agree to host the giveaway for April and continue what Tvenuto has started.
Thanks to all, and good luck!

I'm in. I like Super blue because is its closeness to the historical steels of Japan.

I'm in. I like vg-10 because it is the best all around steel for the money.

I'm in. I am not sure what my favorite steel is but from what I have read so far I think the ZDP-189. Thanks!

And so far my favorite out of my 2 spyderco's is the vg10. Seems to keep a good edge and i have been wanting to try sv30 steel. Hopefully soon.

Great giveaway! But please don't include me (I've already won 3 knives in the last 3 months).
My all around favorite steel is probably VG-10.

Thanks for the giveaway. Paying it forward I will pass my entry onto the next poster. My favorite steels are CPM-D2 and CTS-XHP. I love the edge retention and they take a nice polish.

I am in! My favorite steel is CTS-20CP because it just keeps cutting and cutting and cutting. Sharpens extremely easy for its edge holding ability.

Thanks for the giveaway!
My favourite used to be superblue, but m390 has taken over! Holds its edge like a champ, and i really like that the edge rolls instead of chips

I'm in. My favorite steel would be h1. I fish and live on Lake Michigan perfect steel.

I'm in. Just starting to sharpen so I don't have a favourite steel yet. Great contest, good on you for paying it forward!

Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite steel would have to be VG-10. It can take an edge really quick and holds it for a decent amount of time.

I'm in. My favorite steel is ZDP-189. It's the only real premium steel I've used extensively, beyond the generica german steels of Henckels and Wustof, or Victorinox's steel. Holds an edge like crazy, and is easy enough to sharpen.

Im in. My favorite steal is when indiana jones trades the bag of sand for the gold idol.

Thanks for keeping the ball rolling Niles! Don't enter me in this giveaway, but my current favorite is VG-10 for its all-around utility and ease of sharpening. I'm just starting to play with CTS-204P, and haven't had to sharpen it yet, so that might be next up.

I'm in. I like ZDP/420J2 b/c I think the blending line looks cool and ZDP is a top notch steel.

I'm in. I like CTS-XHP on my Manix2. It is my main use folder which I was able to sharpen it very well and it cuts for long time.

I'm in. I like VG-10, but am warming to S30V of late. Just feels a little better to me. Would like to try the S35 on the Native 5 as well.

My favourite knife steel is CPM S30V
