I just did a complete PM on all my knives over the Holidays -- some needed more relief, better edge, handle repair, etc...

Along the way, I took note of all the steels I have. The list as follows:

8 - D2
6 - A2
2 - 154
2 - VG-10
2 - S30V
1 - unknown
0 - 400 series SS...


I thought for sure I had at least one 440C knife somewhere in those that never see the light that often...:eek:

Had one S30V, but didn't like the knife's design and blade shape, traded it off. Nothing to complain about the steel quality, but a five inch upswept point wasn't my bag.
