I've enjoyed working with Rob on this project. I'd encouraged him to test it out to his satisfaction too and he just e-mailed me that he has beat me to skinning! The Wambli was used to field dress 2 fat does in Montana this morning including cutting up the briskets. Keep in mind that this blade was used to chop up a lot of wood and cardboard before the does without any resharpening in between. And to quote Rob "and the dang knife is still sharp!"

No question that Talonite, as a variant of stellite, has a role to play in the cutlery world. It grinds easier than stellite and may prove out the manufacturer's claims of a 35% improvement in wear characteristics such as edge holding in the long run! It ought to for $141/lb!!!!
