Carbon steel, US made but UK friendly, sounds too good to be true.

The 52100 MT1 Mule remains one of my absolute favorites.

How do you say 52100 out loud? Five-two-one-zero-zero? Fifty-two-thousand-one-hundred? Something else?
Just curious

Is 50100-B essentially 1095 cro-van (carbon v, 50-110B, 0170-6)? I still have trouble with all the different names sometimes.

I think of it as "fifty-two one hundred." Not sure if there is a correct way.

Here in the Netherlands I'd also rather take a lock, preferably a Native 5 lw. :D
(wouldn't mind a Manix lw either!)

You'll just have to convince Latrobe/Carpenter or Niagra to roll it to the thickness you need. :D

It is one of the most common cutlery steels and has been called a large number of names by pretty much everyone who has used it. The thing to keep in mind that most of the basic production knives used basic production hardening and therefore what you can get from the steel isn't generally reflected in very inexpensive knives.

@ Sal: What are you doing with all the hugs now? I really hope it will not arouse jealousy by Mrs. Glesser :p

I would love a ukpk in this steel. I probably wouldn't buy a bigger knife like a para2 tho. Would prefer it in a smaller edc knife

My favorite Golden-made knives for this steel would be these, in this order:

1) D'Allara Drop Point, disco'ed w/FRN or upcoming new FFG form w/G-10! (Kill 2 birds w/one stone :D)
2) Regular weight G-10 Manix 2
3) Manix 2 XL
4) Millie
5) UKPK Leaf or DP G-10
6) Urban Leaf G-10

... but I'll take anything I can get :o
:spyder: :cool:
