In regards to performance, specifically with the newly released Military. Has anyone put theirs through any type of extensive cutting?
For whatever reason, although very sharp out of the box, the factory edge hasn't stayed sharp for very long. Far from a steel expert, and the comments below are not grounded on any scientific experiments, but this has been my first impression.
When I have to take down large amount of cardboard, I reach for the Military. Most of these tasks in the past were handled by the green 204P. Using the same type of cardboard (well, from same product but maybe the cardboard has changed, although I can't really tell), the REX 45 Military came off much duller than the 204P. Maybe this is expected based on the steel, maybe it was the cardboard, maybe it is the factory edge? I don't know.
Just wondering what kind of experience are you having with your Military REX 45?
Although I haven't re-profiled it yet, it sharpened up pretty quick. I should be able to run the same type of cutting test/task next week. I may end up re-profiling it by then.
