And REX 45... well, I am not a steel expert at all and my comparisons to other steels are by no means "scientific"; but I am more than impressed. I really cut masses of cardboard, whittled wood, cut cordage and packages and food... and still the Manix shaves hair and cuts thin paper easily. Furthermore I can see or feel no rolls or chips whatsoever. Also no signs of corrosion so far
So far I've had a good experience with Rex 45 too in the Shaman. While it is thicker than the Manix, it still cuts well.
Lost its shaving sharp edge after about a week of use, and I make a point of not sharpening until the blade reaaally snags on paper cuts.
It is still plenty sharp after a month of use.
Though it was ruthlessly kicked out of my pocket today by the good old C36
