We've got two new Chappies in-the-works.
New steel or handle material or both?
I love the knife and XHP is a great steel that gets very sharp. But it's not very well know by the general public and it is not 100% stainless
. I think M390 would make it a better seller.
I personally would love to see a Salt version in LC200N. They have all the materials in Taichung to make that happen.
So what you're saying is : XHP is not "100% stainless" and "very well known by the general public" but M390 is .... based on what ?
XHP has around 9% Chromium left in solution which is below the stainless mark. https://knifesteelnerds.com/2018/06/11/ ... stainless/
And M390 is way more popular in the knife community. It's like a brand name thing. Same thing with SxxV steels. People recognize the name and know it is stainless and works well. And they buy it cause of it's reputation/performance. Not that they know anything about steels.
I wouldn't say any non knife random guy would know. Most people don't know steels. But they wouldn't be shopping for this knife in the first place. They buy something cheap cause it also cuts right...
