99% of end users wouldn't know the difference between S30V and Cruwear if the blade wasn't marked (except noted above about rust issues ) on a folding knife. I usually just ignore these type of posts Rick...especially when they start talking about what's best for the company.
Anyone who has used other steels can tell immediately by the way it cuts and how swiftly it looses a truly sharp edge in favor of a Blah working edge.
S30V IS NOT A GOOD STEEL!
It is a great steel, there are however better steels out their an Cruwear is one of them.
In this video I carve wood, baton wood, chop wood, cut up different foods, and slice a pop can in half. My S30V blade, despite being reprofiled to a thinner, weaker angle, still cleanly shaved and sliced paper afterward.
I'm not sure how performance like that indicates I own a bad knife steel.
Nice video BTW. Had that Knife been in Cruwear after seeing it the first time I would have bought one just from this video alone, love the design, bored with the steel
