Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! So I definitely have a problem. I love steel. Eat, sleep, breathe it.* So back to the point of this. My last order of steel was massive. (For me) it was roughly 270$ and I'm placing an order for more today. As I had a few customers pay me for deposits. This order will have a few new to me steels ordered too. Because I figure why not? Steels I will be ordering: Z-A11- the same thing as CPM 10V but no sulphur and 0.05 more vanadium. It is a particle steel!! 1 gen particle form Zapp. -these knives will be available. --Some other favorites but not new to me-- Vanax- I'm sure most of you have heard about this steel. Not cheap...but damn its some impressive stainless. 3 times the nitrogen of LC200N/ZFINIT!!!! Z-wear- almost totally identical to cru-wear, tough, great edge holding, will be using the modified heat treatment. CPM 4V- a great tough steel with great edge holding. I've used this once before with my mutant fixed blade series. Ran it at 62HRC. Gonna try 63 this time. I will be aiming for 64-66HRC on the Z-A11. And using the 60.5HRC for the vanax. The zwear will be run at 63HRC with Low temper. The 4V will be run at 63. Hopefully this post is allowed to stay in here, the idea is to show the general public here some exciting high performance steels and how they work!!! And possibly have the opportunity to buy them once done. *not really I use a respirator!!!!
