Mmmmmmm dangit. Gotta add this one to the list.
Not a collector, but all these knives followed me home!

That's so cool, thanks for all that info! One more question if I may, since this is a thread about patinas, how has the patina response been for you? Natural or forced etc...?
No worries. Thanks Jon. :)

I’ve had all three of the K390 releases so far (Edgematters Pingo, Urban, Police).

I find K390 to take a patina readily when new - it’s only slightly more corrosion resistant than the simple carbon steels or 52100 and Superblue.

In terms of the non stainless steels I have in Spydies, and how quick they are to patina, I’d rate them roughly as follows.

52100 and Superblue.
K390
M4
Maxamet
Cruwear

I just treat K390 the same as a simple carbon steel blade, regarding maintenance and oiling.

I don’t tend to force patinas, although I do intentionally use new non stainless knives on food prep like slicing and peeling fruit and veg, until the patina is well established.

That's about what I reckoned, and of course I'm sure the heat treatment protocol has much to do with reactivity as well. Thanks again!

Thanks Barry!

C'mon folks, let's see some patina shots! I know there's a bunch of Maxamet and 4V and M4 out there at the moment. Anyone getting any patina on their Cruwear users? There's gotta be some fantastic looking 52100 blades by now!

I wish I had one to post at the moment, but none of mine take a patina..
