    That Scrapmax 460 may not be available any other time. 511s are easier to come by, unless you gotta have tan.

    I didn't realize that... +1 for scrapmax...

    that looks to be just about the perfect do everything camp knife (for general prep type work)

    any idea how elmax stacks up against SR101?

    See, my wife definitely won't get over it... i've spent more than a grand of real money on knives, hawks etc, in the last 2 months, and i have 2k in INFI coming from the custom shop along with the Zermeno Azrael that she's getting me for my birthday

    i MIGHT be able to hide one knife... if i get 2 she's gonna hang me with a towel and make it look like an accident

    It's not food, it's a doggie treat. Very likely bacon flavored.

    The Scraps are a must own, sure wish more Busses had been offered. Do not get me wrong, the Shanks are cool.

    So to give my opinion on which to get its the ScrapMax stuff.

    And comparing Elmax to high carbon steels is a bit like granny smith apples compared to golden delicious...a powdered stainless steel will have a lot of differences to a high carbon steel. So far my Elmax knives are serving me very well and holding a sharp edge for a pleasantly surprising duration.

    Yeah, I'm hoping they made plenty of those!!! I'm not terribly worried though, as I know I'll get my order in within the first 10 seconds.
