I know that we have a sprint coming out with Canvas Micarta and a different steel. I know there are a number of "Exclusives" IN-the-works. The Shaman design has proven to please a few. This means there will be variations.
S90 or higher is not clear. Higher in what area, or better still whattauwant?
I know I’m not the guy you’re asking that question of, but I’ve been really wanting some K490, especially at 65+ hrc. Twice as tough as M4 and nearly as wear resistant at a given hardness. If we jack the hardness, I think it’ll hang with or surpass
the “big boys” K390, 4V, and Rex 45 at the same hardness.
Not only that, but with more chromium and a cryo/low temper, it will have significantly better corrosion resistance to boot.
I can’t get any to make my own knives (I tried getting it from Bohler USA), and the one maker who used to use it stopped. I’m, therefore, stuck wishing for a steel that I might otherwise never get a chance to use.
Thanks for hearing me out, and have a great day!!
