I like cruwear but in my experience, it’s like a less stainless but easier to sharpen s30v. Not wear resistant enough for my job, and I’d rather use lc200n on non work days. I don’t have any complaints about cruwear, but no real use for it either. I listed xhp because it’s my favorite of the jack of trades steels (aside from 20cv, but I don’t have any spyderco folders in 20cv, only a mule).
BRING ON THE MANIX XL SPRINTS AND EXCLUSIVES! And 10v or K390ify the Golden lineup, please.
Top 5 folders I’ve owned: Serrated Caribbean Leaf, Shaman, Manix XL, ZDP-189/CF Caly 3.5, Native LW.
Top 5 steels I’ve owned: LC200N, K390, CPM S90V, M390, CPM REX45.
Top 3 steels I want more of: M390 class, A11 class (including K390), CPM REX45.
