    I'm just wondering why Sog is still using AUS-8 on some of their more premium knives? I really don't understand how anybody can be satisfied paying $100+ for some of the worst knife steel out there.

    Worse? Based upon what metric, exactly?

    LOL....If one thinks that Aus8 is "some of the worst knife steel out there", they obviously don't know anything about knife steels.

    AUS8 is far from the worst knife steel out there. It’s not my first choice, but it’s far from the worst.

    I agree that AUS8 is certainly not the worse blade steel to be had, but if you're paying over $100 bucks for a knife you really should get better steel IMO.
