    Go thin on the edge. All of mine have been 0.005" or even thinner. 10-15 dps depending on the application. 3months with one strop on my edc. I tried to cut stainless foil with it, and dulled the edge. With different geometry, it would probably be fine. I'm really liking this steel. I avoided air hardening steels for the longest time, but not anymore.

    Why did you avoid air hardening if you're not forging?

    I was under the impression that the grain was much larger in air hardening steels, preventing the fine edge we get with the simple carbon steels.

    I do some forging, but not a lot. I have peripheral neuropathy that prevents proper forging sessions.

    Oh. I meant, forging would be the only reason I wouldn't want to use air hardening. That and hamon.

    The hamon is the biggest deterrent in terms of air hardening steels. That said, 3v and z-wear are pretty incredible performers. Fine grain, great edge stability, exceptional edge holding. Definitely in a league of their own.

    There's 10V. It has to be at least 3 times better than 3V right?

    I would like to get my hands on a stick of 15V but I've never seen it for sale at any of the normal places.

    I have a knife in 10V and LOVE it. But it is brittle and needs to be used appropriately, don't be scared of it just don't use it as a screw driver or prybar.

    We offer heat treating as well as 15n20.

    Fear not, welcome to the dark side we got cookies.
    I'm planning on getting some thin 10V to make some filet knives out of to try out. Most of the people I know that hunt big game love the short filet knives for game processing.
