    Thing is, my old spec 4.1 is out getting some work done right now. I have a custom sheath for it and I haven't even had a chance to try it yet. I really should get my knife back and see how I like the sheath I had made for it. But I may not get my knife back before those sheaths are gone... Ahhh, the dilemma!

    Yep sure is Silver, lower temp = D3V.
    I saw that video just before and I am so damn impressed!
    The blade has a ridiculously low amount corrosion after more than a year and a half.

    Do these blades have the peened finish? Perhaps that is contributing to its phenomenal results?

    The #delta3v hashtag leads to believe that it is.

    I think the low temper started when they introduced the peened finish, could be wrong. D3v is also low temper just a slight tweak in upgraded edge retention (if I read what Nathan Carothers stated previously about it, in a thread I unfortunately can't find at the moment).

    My understanding is that Guy implemented a low temperature protocol that predates the delta 3v protocol of last summer. While delta 3v is a low temperature protocol and the delta 3v should have the same corrosion resistance as the 1st low temper protocol Guy tested, the delta protocol results in slightly more edge stability. The industry standard referred to by Nathan and others is a high temp protocol.

    My understanding is that all 3v Survive blades from the 4.1 on have the delta treatment and are marked as such by a triangle next to the 3v, but the recent 4.7's and 5.1's do have the low temperature protocol with improved corrosion resistance and better edge stability as compared to the industry standard.

    That's really impressive stuff!

    I think I'll have to pick up a D3V 4.1 to go along with the FK.

    I don't know about Delta and the relative temperature, but the knife in the picture in my opinion is NOT a delta 3V blade. It does not have the delta symbol after the 3V. It's not one of the new 4.1 blanks. I believe Guy started that test before the delta 3V was on anything.

    MAYBE it's on a blade that he had done before he developed the logo. But it is an old spec 4.1 blade. I believe it is the tweaked HT protocol, before the delta, on a peened blade.

    I also think (IIRC) that Guy said elsewhere the new delta blades should have just as good corrosion resistance as the previous tweaked HT ones.

    Disclaimer - all of that is what I think, not what I know, and I am happy to be wrong.

    Here's the Instagram post from 2015 when the blades were placed out there. My understanding is that the low temper 3V is the heat treat used for all the 4.7s and 5.1s. The delta is a variation on the the low temper heat treat and is all the 3V knives going forward.

    Thanks for the input, guys. I was wondering if Guy meant delta, why he didn't just say it. I think I'm following now.

    And another one!

    This isn't an update on GSOs, but Guy has been posting about sharpening and machines every now and then. It's almost like he has a passion for it.

    I had never heard so much discussion on platens before!

    Is anybody else taunted by the picture of Guy in a full face mask with a Necker2 on the Survive facebook page (the public page)?
    The post is dated September 30th, 2014.

    Ha! I'd often think of that exact pic shortly after the starter when folks who didn't care to read what they got into demanded that every model be shipped out immediately.
