to sal ::: Hi,
but here is also fourth possibility,what you dont noticed <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
4) your faulty knife
So i can understand, that you do not post this possibility, because similar thing is shame for firm, who sale it..
So i dont know, but interesting is, that second knife, which will tested here in same time(I dont know exactly type, some Benchmade folder knife with green metal handle) was ok and have had hardness 60.
Today,late afternoon, from my interest only,(because i believe not in test ALSO !)take my one known boy with two his knives there, at my wish, one was Emerson Commander knife, second was Spyderco Police, standard edge.And with following results in the test laboratory: Emerson Commander 58, Spyderco Police 59HRC.
So tell me, where is mistake ?
I noticed in previous messages, that test laboratory is from state department area, no public,and here are testing steels for nuclear electric devices, for army (for foreigner army too),medical steels and etc.
And knife i buy in luxury knife shop, in luxury shopping centre, i got all ok, paper Spyderco box and inside in plastic foil knife.
Here they have more Spyderco types, Delica,Police and etc.
I notice, because that im not buy this knife in some bad or suspicious shop or etc., but here.
I must notice also, that i bought Spyderco Endura from following reason ::i like this design, is flat,light weight-its importand for me,and have nice blade,not so big, not so little <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>so for me its ideal knife for defense (read up, in my previous messages,why i bought knife...)and in addition, good price, its important for me too,Spyderco Endura cost 100usd here,so sure,when i can select,i buy Police, but here is expensive, around 220usd...
I have had big pleasure from knife, this day, when i bought,you can believe me.I watch TV and i play all evening with this and when came my girlfriend from college and i show to her my new brand knife, she said, so if you want, go and visit my father and he make you steel test and you get mark at your new brand superknife...so i visit, i thought, yes,when i get mark here,will super, i can roister, what i have <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
And after start, what i wrote here last days...
From someone, i was accused,and in addition rough,(read message at first page),that im some human, who hate american things, its really TOTAL kibosh ....
i have absolute,ABSOLUTE no reason say some bad here, some untruthful gups.
Many peoples wrote me mails and ask me, why i spend time for some non important knife problem, so throw it and buy other, wrote me.
Other peoples wrote me,good, you are fighter,and you have not fear post your opinions, go go!
So, yes, unfortunately perhaps im fighter,i live alone from my 17 years, when my parents die in car accident and when you will not,fighter, everybody can kick to you, and in addition here, in Czech ...
But ok,its life.
And when i studied Charles university here, college of law, here in Prague, i have not easy time, so you learn very fast what fight is.But sorry, i will not pester here with my personal things...
So, and in addition, i know money value, and when i buy something brand,something no cheap and its bad, i will not shut up, its all.
If my messages here haywired you,i will not apologize for that, because im satisfied, that its true.
Or delete this forum, at the end,its Spyderco web ...
I wish you all good
BTW: and i forget write ,my real name is Simona, so you musnt write my name in "" ...,thank you.
