    I do want to say if you're a diehard carbon steel fan, think about the CPM stainless steels. That UNK could have easily skinned 2 or 3, maybe more hogs before resharpening. It was still just as sharp as when I started.

    That is really interesting. What hardness do you get out of it?
    Rest in peace Maniacal Pete. I wish I could have done more.

    Hardness is about 58/60.

    Where do you get your CPM from?

    Usually from Jantz and sometimes directly from Niagra's online store.

    Congrats and thanks for the pics!! That set-up looks oh so familiar... I shot and skinned my first hog this year. No hunting by hand or w/dogs... but I know what it takes to skin a big pig! Glad to hear the UNK did the job and then some.

    Hey Redsnake, I was pleasantly suprised that it wasn't as difficult to skin as I've been told. Maybe it was the knife that made it easy. Really not much harder then a big deer. There was definately more cutting envolved then with a deer. I think that thick layer of fat makes it hard to roll the hide down.

    Let's just say I am a die hard fan of Scott's A2 but after seeing the CPM 154 on Scott's UNK my next order will be one of the CPM steels

    Collin emailed me this link. http://www.nsm-ny.com/?page id=43 Look at the toughness of CPM 154 compared to A2. Also the toughness of CPM S35 VN is equal to O1.
