What do you make of their 440B? From what I’ve read it’s run at 55-56
I found this interesting from their website:
A special high carbon (1.00%) stainless steel not obtainable in ordinary knives. The same stainless steel specified by NASA for knives used by Gemini astronauts. Immune to the effects of saltwater. Designated with an S.

That is the one that started my liking large fixed blade utility/fighting knives but to this day I have never had the original. I am a big fan of O1 and do like forged knives.
I'm not surprised that Jim will actually use his. I'd be more surprised if he didn't use it and treat it like any of his other knives which can mean hard use if appropriate.
Jim, do you look at that knife differently from the way you would have 25 years ago? Has all that learning and experience stopped you from looking at a knife and just liking it like the young man you were?
It hasn't me. I still geek out like a big kid over large , shiny , sharp cool looking knives just like when I was 18.
