Wow, this thread is exciting!

I'm on board with 15V for sure... it's a "must own" for me.
CPM 15v is very enjoyable with the right HT and proper sharpening stones and techniques.

I love how strong and wear resistant the edge is. It offers a nice sweet spot in properties in between maxamet and rex121.

15v is more wear resistant than even Maxamet?

There is no model I wouldn't buy if it was released in 15v right now.

While sharpening, which steels are comparable to 15V?

It sounds like a 15v Mule would sell well.

Similar to these

10V, A11, Z-A11, PMA11, K294

no difference in sharpening difficulty with proper abrasives and techniques despite the difference in carbide volume. 17% MC vs 23% MC

I have been enjoying CPM 15v

I made a flexible blade hunter/skinner at 65rc.

Should get in tight spots nicely.

That is impressive for a high carbide steel at 65rc.

DBH, how is the edge stability on your 15v blade?

It's not 52100 but it's not S110V either.

In my testing on handmade customs it has made me very happy. The stability was higher than the Rex121 I made knives from.

Yes, it's good for folks to see this is possible.

Yes, it's is very thin, sub ~0.060" at the base with a taper to the tip. All done by hand and eye.

Holee! A Chaparral XL in 15V with a 0.060” spine at the base. What an idea! :rolleyes:

An opinel No.8 is 0.066" at the spine.

I measured this 15v knife at 0.045" at the base with a taper to 0.005" at the tipy tip.

The stock thickness was 0.105" so it was a lot of wet grinding.

The real beauty is it's also sub 0.010" BTE on a 15dps.

A true laser.

Well that's even double :eek:

Both my #6's spine is .05" increasing to .055 in the middle, tapering to .01 at the tip. BTE is .008", angle unknown due to freehand but should be close to 30 inclusive.

I don't think this is a geometry that should be pushed on a production folder.

I just wanted to show what the limits of 15v also I wanted a flex feature for this specific design.
