Pick one please.
Damacore is a cladded steel and not really what most people think of when they think of Damasteel. I am curious about it's pricing though. I imagine N11X (like Vanax) isn't at all cheap.TomAiello wrote: ↑Fri Jul 10, 2020 12:20 pmWhich Damasteel? Isn't choosing the alloy a pre-requisite to choosing the pattern?
A list of the various Damasteel alloys is here: https://damasteel.se/our-steel-alloys/
The actual steel type used is _a lot_ more important to me than the pattern. I VASTLY prefer DC18N to DS93x or DS95x.
If this knife is DC18N, I'm in for multiples, even at a $200 price point. If it runs in DS93X or DS95X, I'm not actually super interested, but it depends on the price.
DC18N is only available in Odins Eye™, Grosserosen™, Hakkapella™, Thor™, Hugin™ and Rose™.
So basically, I vote for "any pattern of DC18N" and I vote against "DS93X or DS95X" regardless of the pattern.
A good review of the steel (which helps explain why I'm so much more interested in DC18N) can be found here: https://knifesteelnerds.com/2018/10/15/ ... ore-dc18n/
DC18N is basically made of Vanax, 12c27 and CPM154, although Damasteel calls them N11X, PMC27 and RWL34, respectively.
1. DC18N (any pattern)
Really don't want: DS93X or DS95X (any pattern).
