The pitting on my chef knife says otherwise.
Can you supply some pics?
To clarify it is a MAC Pro, not a SpydieChef, if that’s what you were thinking.
That’s what I was thinking.

So, in a rant against LC200N, you’re complaining about pitting in a knife in another steel, even though no one here has seen pitting in their LC200N blades, SpydieChef or otherwise?

Doesn’t really advance the conversation.

I have to agree it's pretty odd to bring that up. But that's my gut response to a lot of Trinity's posts. I know that I've been like that too, though. Being excited about things makes you want to participate in every conversation.

For what it's worth, though, I do agree that corrosion resistance matters in the kitchen. My kitchen knives get used by children and guests, and you should see the (cheap) O-1 Opinel and the (not as cheap) 26c3 custom at this point. We've even been able to put some staining on a Southfork (s90v).

To be fair, I think he was responding to the (rather questionable, IMO) claim that corrosion resistance is unimportant in a kitchen knife. His experience with the pitted knife indicated otherwise.

Not anything specific about LC200N.

You are missing the point. The Meat man is correct. I disagree with the rant against LC200N. If my chef knife was made of LC200N, I doubt there would be any pitting due to not cleaning it until after dinner. I value corrosion resistance in the kitchen.

My point is that your point obscured this thread, which began as a rant having nothing to do with LC200N’s corrosion-resistance, a property of little concern to the OP, even if it is to you.

Man, as much as i want one, I think I need a new fillet knife more. The 7.5” you made me of my fillet design (in Vanax) is still going strong but getting a little thick behind the edge from sooo much use and sharpening. I’m working on a 5.5” model too that might be what I’ll try to get you to do next.
Which ever you want to do is fine with me. Since Vanax is so expensive and it was such a freakin' ordeal to get that last shipment landed, I immediately profiled a second Vanax Waterway and a Vanax Rigid Fillet for you in addition to the Waterway I was making you at that time. I just figured you'd want them one day and wasn't confident that I'd be able to get the Vanax when I needed it in the future. As well, I have a CPM20CV rigid fillet profiled just in case too. I use my CPM20CV Lance Clinton designed Rigid Fillet in my kitchen every day....'cause I don't have a fancy Vanax version :p .

A Smaller version of the Rigid Fillet would be cool as well. I really like the idea of it being new of course. From a maker point of view...fewer square inches to hand rub is better :D .

Whatever you decide, just let me know and we'll discuss details. At the moment I'm nearing the end of an extremely time intensive full Ti guard and pommel construction mini bowie style build for Marius (Elena86), but I expect to be done within the next 2 weeks.

For what it's worth, I completely agree with those that would like to see a fully serrated LC200N Waterway!

he replied to "Corrosion resistance is the last thing that matters in the kitchen". Trinity essentially replied with "it does matter." I personally don't think it obscured anything to challenge such a bold statement.

Everytime you post something like this, it make me hate you a little more.

Seriously! I'd beat you in the head with someone else's leg, to get that Vanax filet.

I think LC200N is fine. It's as corrosion resistant as H1 but holds a way better edge when plain ground. It is also very easy to keep sharp at home.

There is stuff out there I don't like/need but I just don't buy it/or talk at length why I don't like it. I'm pretty sure for anything I don't like there will be just as many people as me that do like it.

That’s how I see it, too. It’s not as if Spyderco is going to start making every knife out of LC200N. There are plenty of alternate choices. If someone doesn’t like it, they can simply not buy knives in that steel.
