OK. For me I'll take CPM Cruwear then K390, Rex 45 with Maxamet last. Pure abrasive resistance isn't my most desired attribute but I do rate it on my scale of personal needs above corrosion resistance which is last.
Cruwear may have the lowest ceiling but it has the highest floor. It scores well in everything and really has no real weaknesses. I like sharpening it and I do not need a lot of skill to make it cut really well. It's a simple steel care wise and can get along with pretty much any reasonable geometry I care to use.
On the other hand all of the above steels are very, very high performers. I would find no argument with anybody who prefers any of the above. I have them all and plan on keeping it that way .
There is a lot of overlap performance wise and I could just as easily choose from the 4 by what platform I'd think suited my needs best that day.
what are your opinions Shawn?Deadboxhero wrote: ↑Thu Jan 09, 2020 6:29 pmWhich of these with production Geometry and HT is best in your opinion for you and why?
No wrong answers, no giving anyone a hard time about their opinion. Speak freely
Share, give your 2¢ about how you feel between these choices.
No other steels or options, just these as they are with what you can get from Spyderco.
