    First, I think we should NOT group 154cm and CPM-154 together. In my experience CPM-154 is noticeable better and IF that could be gotten I would choose that. What would the heat treat be on the Elmax? It seems that Elmax at 59-60 is decent but at higher RC levels it is a monster as Jankerson showed. I have no problem with CTS-XHP.

    I dont know about the rest of you BUT I WOULD pay an extra $50 for S110V.

    Looks like CTS-XHP has slowly pulled away from Elmax (with a huge drop-off from there to any of the other choices), so I'm going to call this one as well. The winner, with a plurality of 25 votes out of 64, is CTS-XHP.


    Full results are as follows (total votes = 64):

    CPM-S30V 5 7.81%

    CPM-S35VN 3 4.69%

    154CM (or, if possible, CPM-154 - the PM version of 154CM) 4 6.25%

    Elmax 20 31.25%

    CTS-XHP 25 39.06%

    Any of these is fine/defer to the expertise of others 7 10.94%




    Update: The new blade steel poll thread is up. I'm going to close this thread to avoid confusion and so that any further discussion of the blade steel for the knife will take place in the new poll thread and in the main discussion thread.
