    A question I can't begin to answer but would absolutely love to hear the responses from. What a great all around steel. Need me some of that!

    Tougher than you might think

    Another vote for the 562cf.

    Why only 20cv why not cts204p or m390 which are all essentially the same steel?

    My ZT 0462 is my favorite in 20CV.

    20CV because it holds an awesome edge forever.

    The 0462, plain and simply because I love the knife. I am a huge fan of Sinkevich designs!

    0609. Very size efficient. Lots of blade to handle, slim but with enough front to back to be hand filling, no wasted handle. .12” stock and good grind. Fun flipper, too.

    0393 here. Scooter also has a great pick with the AD-15, but mine's in 3V so it doesn't count.

    I don't own it but the Grip 550-1 looks to be a good knife.

    Bark River makes a nice looking 20CV model.

    I EDC an M4 Spydie Gayle Bradley #1 which has good edge holding.

    My current favorite would be my Grayman Satu. I like the way it carries in the pocket and in hand. For its size it is well balanced, light and sharp as hell.

    This one has been in my pocket since I got it. It's worked VERY well as a work knife, cutting dusty cardboard, 1" dirty rope, landscape fabric and everything in between. It gets very sharp, takes an easy mirror polish, tough (no chipping so far), holds that razor edge for a good while, and after a good reprofile, it's a wicked slicer. Better than the slicer grind IMO.

    This one:


    Yes, it’s polarizing; obviously I’m in the “love it” camp. A little over 4 oz for a big 3.75” blade. Great ergos and the smoothest knife on washers imaginable.

    If 20CV’s brothers count, I might throw in ths one, also somewhat polarizing:
