Which steels did you carry today?

Postby AccountDeletedUserRequest » Thu Nov 14, 2019 2:43 am

I thought it'd be fun to have a thread where we track which steels we carry every day.

At the end of every week I'll tally up the responses. I'll keep a running total for each week, and a grand total for the entire thread.

Include any knife you carried for a good portion of the day. Leave out tools you used for a specific task, e.g. chef knives and splitting mauls.

Today I carried:

VG10 (Police LW)
VG10 (Street Beat)
420HC (Leatherman Micra)


Week 1
  • H1 - 18
  • S30V - 12
  • VG10 - 10
  • Victorinox 1.4110 - 10
  • CTS-XHP - 9
  • K390 - 8
  • M390 - 5
  • Cruwear - 5
  • LC200N - 4
  • ZDP189 - 4
  • Super Blue - 3
  • 4V - 3
  • Maxamet - 3
  • M4 - 3
  • 420HC - 3
  • S110V - 3
  • S90V - 2
  • C70 - 2
  • 20CV - 2
  • HAP40 - 2
  • 52100 - 2
  • V-Toku2 - 2
  • S35VN - 2
  • AEB-L - 1
  • BD1N - 1
  • BD1 - 1
  • 14c28n - 1
  • AUS6 - 1
  • 10V - 1
  • AUS8 - 1
  • 440C - 1
  • Rex 45 - 1
  • ATS-55 - 1
  • INFI - 1
  • 3V - 1
  • N690 - 1
  • 154CM - 1
  • PSF27 - 1
  • CTS204P - 1
  • 8Cr13Mov - 1
  • 1095 - 1

Super blue (Calypso Jr) Will 99% certainly be my one and only carry until it finally gets knocked out of my pocket :)

VG-10 (Temperance 2)
S30V (Magnitude)

I like to carry fixed blades in cold weather, though I don’t think my jacket today covered much of anything :o I also normally carry much smaller knives, but lately I’ve been surprised by how well bigger ones carry vs what I expected before I ever carried one.

BD1N

I’m currently in a faithful relationship with a Manix LW. She’s been everything a man could want.
I’m only human though and I admit I’ve fraternised briefly with other models. I’ve mostly managed to keep my fingers out of other spydie holes though.

So far today I've carried AUS-6 (Jester) and VG-10 (Kiwi & Stretch). Yesterday I carried those same knives and used VG-10 (Stretch), MBS-26 (K05 and modified K04), and some mystery stainless steel in a steak knife I got 50+ years ago for cigarette coupons that's my go-to knife for cutting food in frying pans and on ceramic plates. :o :)

Actually THREE steels (knives) today,rather untypical (many) for me:

CTS XHP (Chaparral FRN, at home in the morning)
H1 (Pac.Salt SE, while trailrunning)
VG10 (Endela SE, for the rest of the day)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

I have almost no rotation these days, it's been LC for most of this year and it was H1 for about 2 years before that. I guess you can throw Cruwear into the mix but I haven't really had a chance to use it yet.

LC has honestly ruined my taste for most steels aside from some sprints I'd like to see. For my daily uses I think this is the steel for me.
