More K390?

Postby ZrowsN1s » Wed Feb 06, 2019 6:34 pm

I'm eager to try some K390, but I think the size of the P4 is a bit much for me. Otherwise it's perfect.

Here's what I'm after, K390 with as high a hardness as Spyderco is willing to make, a THIN blade stock, and a blade under 3". No liner locks or slip joints.

IDEAS:
Delica (G-10 or FRN)
Chaparral LW
PE Hawkbill Dragonfly

An exeption to the under 3 inch requirement I'd be willing to make would be for a Wharncliffe Endura.

Opinions?

I could not agree more :)
viewtopic.php?t=77862

I still hope we'll see a full Seki sprint run because it seems like a natural thing to do next. But a golden run would sell awesome as well,anf a DLC PM2 is my self centered suggestion :cool:

I'll buy any locking folder though. Just gimme that K390 awesomeness in something smaller than the Police4, please :spyder:

I'd buy it. I think if it's made in Japan, I'd most like to see a Dragonfly, but so far all those models have sprinted together.

This is probably the best steel, all around, that spyderco has ever offered.

I like M4 a lot because at the hardness it's offered at it is a tougher option than k390, but k390 from a high performance standpoint has it all (aside from corrosion resistance). More k390 is always good.

Hi Marulaghost,

Welcome to our forum.

On the K390, there are plans.

Thanks for the link to the old thread. I'm with you, I'd like to see a full Seki run. I'd buy a para3 or 2 in k390, but I'd prefer the thinner blades of the Seki models.

.......
That's great news Sal!

It's one of the best performing steels I've used. Has incredible edge retention while being painless to sharpen. Surprisingly good corrosion resistance for me when used for camp food prep.

I'd like to see a 3.5-4" fixed blade made from 3mm FFG K390, like the Police, with a bit stouter of a tip.

I would love to see a Golden made knife in K390, especially the Manix 2 and Manix 2 XL. A good back lock is always my preference. No liner locks or frame locks, please.

The Native is just not my favorite knife. It is a good knife, but it does not fit my hand very well. I love the looks of it, though. Still, if it were in K390 I might have to get one, anyway.

Bring it on. The P4 has been in my pocket all week and has rekindled my appreciation of this steel. Would be great in a PE hawkbill as the OP suggested, still my vote would be to see this in a Caly.... perhaps and FRN one :)

If a man could dream......foliage green Manix XL with DLC K390 blade and blacked out hardware.

I'd have to buy a few.

I would like a Military, Native or Shaman. If it had to be 10V or A11 that would be fine too.

Since they are already working with K390 in Seki City then I don't see why doing a full run of Seki knives in k390 would be out of the question. I would be in for a Delica and a Stretch for sure.
