This is great!!! Can't wait ... oh boy!!!
Newb question. I'm not familiar with S110V. How does it compare to the original Elmax?
Mark me down for one!
Looks like ill be selling my Tilt to fund this
Wow, that sucker may bump my ZT0300 for EDC.
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum
Excuse my ignorance, but what are the benefits to having a composite blade? Why not make the whole blade out of S110V?
Aside from beauty, the blade composition increase toughness to the whole blade.

Its a gimmick. A feature to set apart the brand. Supposedly keeps cost down as opposed to making the whole blade from the higher end steel, but I cant imagine its more cost effective to attach a cheap steel to an expensive steel rather than just making the whole blade from the expensive steel.
It does look cool, dont try to make it out to be more than it is though.
That said, I must have this 0560. An amazing looking knife.
And i don't think the composition of 2 steel will really reduce the cost. The real expensive procedure should be the manufacturing not materials.

Wow! I gotta have one of these. I love the 0560 and this looks even better.
Right now the Composite blade process makes sense in that some steel types are in short supply (like, Vanax 75 and CPM S110V), just by using the composite blade you can probably get twice as many knives out of the same amount of steel.
When using stuff like CPM D-2 it makes a lot of sense, since you get to make the spine and pivot stainless, but have a tool steel edge (or you could go the other way around just for aesthetic reasons).
S110V should be tougher than S90V due to colbalt and niobium, but it would not any tougher than Elmax, the more alloy content never mean to be tougher, as you can see, carbon steel are tougher than any stainless avialable.
Really wanna know when this grail gonna put on the market, 2013 may be?
