I'm very happy to hear this. D2 is fine for many uses, but so is 8Cr.araneae wrote: ↑Thu Jul 18, 2019 8:46 pmI spoke with Eric at Blade about the Chinese D2 prevalent these days in imported knives. Most of it isn't true D2, but the Chinese equivalent (Cr12MoV, I think). Eric says the Chinese D2 steel they've looked at isn't very clean/consistent, and he'd currently rather stay with 8Cr for predictable quality. I'm with Vivi, 8Cr isn't that bad.
I'd love to see this design in a different lock, but as far as liner locks go, this one is at least easy to disengage without sacrificing too much security.
