@Larrin But would the difference be to much between low carbide and high carbide?
Can like all those claims have validity if we use for example AEB-L vs 10v?
Like cheap Low carbide being able to support thinner structure and though being "better". Or is the edge stability at high hardness...
Sorry for the long post.
There is a argument i have been hearing a couple of times and i wanted to know what you guys think about it. I do not agree with this argument but i would like to hear what people who know more than me think.
The idea is that supersteels are not useful. The...
Hi larrin, i got courious by your answer when you talked about 420 for a chopper like a sword or something. And i was wondering 3v is thougher than 420 right? I imagine 420 to be preferable because of easiness of sharpening and stain resistance. I don't know at what hardness swords...
Hi, thanks for your info but i have two questions
1) I'm what consiste the "rolling test"
2) You said the non super steer where better at this, do you have the link or something where you test this ones?
I was taking a eye to the k390 spydercos and took a notice that the endura model says 60hrc "In some retailers" . So i was wondering if this is a mistake or if the hardness has changed? .... Do all the models have the same hardness? What's the intended k390 hardness?
Now for the maxamet...

Yeah but do you think is that what is leading the almost 50% improvement?
After thinking about it , i think most of the increased edge retention may come actually by not using lots of stones over 600 grit.
If you see the video where pete sharpens the m390 knives he used as...
I was thinking about this.... Maybe the longer edge longevity is not caused by the cross sharpening but instead by not using so meany stones over 600grit. Like finer stones will cause carbide tearout
In a study by knifesteelnerds it was show that the ideal for a knife wear resistance is 600...
Hi.... I have due to country importing laws a budget of 200 dollars.
I will only freehand sharpen.
Whith 110 i can buy the whole 6x1 set + some other stuff like a flatten and a 0.1 diamond spray (i only have one of 1 micron) and a couple of rubbers
However with the 8x3 i can buy only 2 of...
In the end of the book it puts heat treatment recommendation for each steel.
However I don't get something. In this article https://knifesteelnerds.com/2018/11/12/rockwell-hardness/
Larrin goes to show that is preferable a high temper temperature with low austerising.
Geting for example the...
Are you sure that the one you saw snapping on it's handle was the Gerber? Because the others like the Heavy duty don't have a full tang and the Gerber does has a full tang.
About Branden last comment. Overall non of this knives are bad knives. I may be a little picky. But I am just...
