Neither one is worth the price you just quoted. $200 max if the steel you really want is in a platform, pm3, you just have to have. $230 is really over the top and is firmly in the price gouging territory.
Can you say how rex 45 is a better steel for small blades than 4v? How the toughness of 4V shouldn't be welcomed at the edge of a smaller knife? Just picking your brain. I don't see how toughness at the edge is ever detrimental regardless of the steel.
I believe the BBS M390 Para 3 is now sold out.TkoK83Spy wrote: ↑Sun Nov 04, 2018 10:04 pmHeck, if you don't already have one...do yourself a favor and get the BBS M390 Para 3 for a lot cheaper. Those prices, I can't get over them for a knife the size of a Para 3. Hate to see someone pay those prices for those knives when they dropped at around $140 and $155.
Can't go wrong with either, just pic the one you think looks better
Roland, since you have both REX 45 and 4V, what would you consider the pluses and minuses of the two steels head to head from your usage?ferider wrote: ↑Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:52 amI still think the video above (steel on brass) shows that Rex45 is harder than RexM4, not tougher.
So, if you want hard on your PM3, go with Rex45, or - more affordably today - S110V. If you want tough against chipping, you could go with CPM CW (tougher than 4V), or the still available s35vn.
I have 4v in the Manix 2 that is still available, and I _love_ that knife, but compared to my Rex45 knives there is more sharpening involved.
