I've lately being doing a lot of research on higher rc steel 62+. I just wanted some opinions of what would be the ideal steel for high performance cutting as well as edge retention.
I have been working with s30v s35vn and cpm d2. They are great steels, but I'm looking for high performance on a competition level.
I guess what I'm asking is what combination of high rc steel and types of grinds should I be considering for my next batch of user knives to produce a wicked slicing machine with incredible edge retention. In other words it just has to cut extremely well and carry an edge for a long time as well as descent wear residence.
Considering cpm m4 as one of my next steels to try.
Thanks for time and input
