Blade looks like you never cut anything!
Not cool as we pay extra for the coating.
FWIW, the coating is not added or marketed as corrosion prevention. There has even been some speculation that it could make the steel more prone to corrosion. In my experience s30v is not one of the best stainless options for corrosion resistance. S90v has performed much better for me in that area.
While I've not had the greatest of luck with S30V either, TiCN is supposed to add at least some level of corrosion prevention.

That should make S30V easily more corrosion resistant than 1095 and PSF27, I'd think. With this level of rust resistance, personally I'd prefer another, tougher, harder, more abrasion resistant steel coated with TiCN (or nothing at all) rather than S30V if it's still going to corrode easily.
I've had some small rust spots appear on S30V before, but it was nothing my thumb nail couldn't remove. Definitely not to the point where it eats away at the blade ad much as what happened here.
