Not to be a jerk, but that K390 edge and bevel appear to be in mint condition...

Where's the patinas!? Edges look flawless as well. Not to be a jerk, but how can you claim to love said steels with no visible evidence of use?
No offense taken...it's only cut up a few boxes so far, and is still carrying the factory edge which I suspect will probably last for a while. I didn't mean to insinuate that I had put K390 through it's paces yet at all...just that I was super glad to get it in the PM2 platform (this is my first experience with K390).

Time will tell, but the reason I am excited about it and the reason I jumped on it when it came out, is that I expect it to perform at a level that I don't currently have in my collection (we'll see if that is the case).

I work in an office these days, and my knife using/appreciation/collecting has long preceded my move into an office environment. Everything gets used, everything gets rotated...

Is this better?

I totally understand. Office use definitely makes it difficult to put a knife through its paces. It's a steel I'm very intrigued by, but have yet to take the plunge on. Waiting on a couple particular models to provide the opportunity.

I've seen/read so many people loving it but with no evidence or reviews of use. Not that anybody needs to do so, but I'm just eager to learn! Thank you for your reply, I appreciate it. Again, I'm not always the best with words, but meant nothing bad towards you with my post.

I understand...but it wasn't subtle and the reply in the other thread wasn't cool either.

For those who have been using K390 do you think that it's better to force a patina or to let one develop naturally? I have done both. I forced a patina with 52100 and have let patina develop naturally with M4. Both with good results.
Do right always. It will give you satisfaction in life.

That's a good question, and I really think that, as you seem to suggest, the answer is "either way." It is possible that the choice hinges on how much one considers oneself a "purist" who would never dream of forcing a patina, or if one simply likes the effects that can be obtained from forcing a patina. Again, as you seem to suggest, good results can be had either way, so I'd say go with what's fun for you!

I would force it if I'm close to abusive conditions but under normal use if do it natural I like the randomness

I have only been using K390 for a short time, and I am definitely not an expert on knife patina, but I am going to allow mine to develop naturally. I haven’t gotten the knife into anything that has caused any discoloring yet.

The only knife that I have forced a patina on is a Super Blue blade. It turned the blade to a very dark rust color and created a couple of raised rust spots that I could see and feel with my finger. The blade though has stayed at that same level of patina for years now. I think that Super Blue is a whole different animal from K390 though.
