BG42 or ATS34 ??

Mar 22, 2001
Hi Guy's, can any of you tell me what type of steel STRIDER is using for there blade's now ??? I ordered an MT from OSO GRANDE about a week ago and forgot to ask !! I know they were using ATS-34, but if i'm not mistaken there was talk about going with BG42 for there fixed blade's !!

Thank's for your help and Take Care, Mario C.:D
If I'm not mistaken, they'll make the knife in either, but I would be willing to bet that the MT (Good choice by the way) you are getting will be ATS-34. Most of the folders are of BG-42, and fixed blades can be ordered with that steel. HTH
I believe that that basic Strider line is ats-34. Last I heard 1/4" BG-42 is hard to come by. I asked Edmund Davidson to make me a 1/4" bowie in BG-42 and he told me that it would add quite a bit to the overall cost of the knife. It sort of surprised me that Mick's custom bowies were 1/4" BG-42 and it may contribute to why they are priced the way they are.
