S30V works fine for me ... not a deal breaker, and actually glad to see it is still being used. I bet it sells out quickly ... maybe sooo quick that I end out not getting one despite expressing my interest in two of them over a year ago. :mad:

I suspect there will be other opportunities in other steels and coated versions as well... time will tell!

So many knives - so little funds!!!

I would much prefer a different steel than S30V.

This is a really special design and deserves a special steel right out of the gate. This is an all day easy sell as far as design goes.

S45VN makes allot of sense as does the SPY27. S30V is dead to me have too much of it already.

I figure they don't want to put out too many knives (and certainly not a new (blade-) design) in these new steels.
But rather wait for the feedback and real life impressions of the market/ the end users...

I personally am totally fine with S30V, but I get that if one is more into steels than I am he/she would want something less "common"
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

I'm not too concerned about the steel but I think these are going to be extremely popular and will be made in many different steels in the future.

Not my favorite blade style but I’d definitely buy one. It looks like the tip is thick enough to endure a good deal of puncturing.
