Uk Penknife Maxamet?

Postby TomAiello » Sun Mar 26, 2017 6:58 pm

Will there be a UK Penknife in Maxamet to follow up the S110V?

Does anyone know?

They said they plan to do Maxamet on a bunch of their flagship models. I dont know if that includes the UKPK though

lol, i just ordered a s110v version and was about to make this same thread!

I've been waiting forever for a supersteel ukpk with frn handles and would welcome any additional variants. I love everything about my original UKPK except the CTS BD1.

The power to weight ratio on a Maxamet ukpk would be even greater than on the S110V version right Sal?

I'd love to get one.

For me, a great "go everywhere" set of knives would be Manix LW (legal where I live), Native LW (legal in a place I visit for two or three weeks every year) and UKPK (legal in a place I go for work for 3-5 weeks every year). I have the full set in s110v (ordered my UKPK today) now, but I'd love to get a complete set in Maxamet. :)

I think I would be up for that after getting the S110v. Ukpk is a nice platform.

I am loving S110V and for me the UKPK is growing on me so much i have just ordered one and cant wait to experience it. I am still deciding between Cruwear and Maxamet for next purchase.

I think Maxamet has a greater chance of happening, given the other models that have gone s110v -> Maxamet.

Random thought, but I think the UKPK would be a fantastic platform to do "test" steels (like the Mules) in something more EDC-able.

And I bet the people who live in places where you can't EDC a fixed blade (or a locker, even) would love to get in on the latest steels.

Hi Tom,

Probably in time.

Hey Wralle,

Welcome to our forum.

Cobra, I think so. Both are really good on abrasion resistance. Maxamet has a bunch of unobtanium and we're still watching reaction to both steels. I really like my UK S110. Carry it quite a bit. I'd also like one in Maxamet, 52100 and Cruwear :D

Tease! Maybe the ukpk folding mule idea could have merit?

Well, my reaction to S110V has been kind of meh. I like it but I don't love it. Maxamet on the other hand has me smitten. It is unlike anything else I have tried. I just want MORE!!! I don't know why but for a steel that stays sharp so long I just love the way it sharpens. Maybe it's the high hardness? I don't know. It doesn't seem to be that hard to grind and it doesn't seem to want to hang onto a stubborn bur or wire edge. I can get it hair popping sharp off of a pocket stone pretty easily whereas S110V seems to like it if I hit the sharpmaker or bench stones. Also, so far for my uses it has been plenty durable. I use my knives for work and some of that would be harder use but I still just use it as a knife so no abuse. I did use it to cut the dome out of the bottom of a few soda cans and the tip was still pin point sharp and the edge had no damage.

Do we have a Maxamet discussion thread? We need to talk about it if want to see even more of it. I am curious if others have had a similar early impression as me. I haven't heard any bad feedback yet. Jim's test was off the charts. I have used my Manix heavily since December and I have used the Mule a bit in the kitchen and also to do a little wood carving.

How about a G10 UKPK? In just about any steel, it would make an old man happy! :)

l recently got the s110v UKPK. I love it but this is my first experience with a steel in this class. I can't tell how well it holds the edge but l sharpened it feels very different. Almost like glass on the ceramic. In my head I imagine the little niobium carbide skating along the stone haha. It's by far the more time consuming to sharpen than my 4V and XHP knives.

I love the platform so much that I ordered the BD1 version. l do love BD1's ability to take a vicious edge with only a few passes on the ceramic.
52100 on the UKPK platform with it's thin blade, it's would be a monster slicer.
