I suggest you sit down and relax with a nice single malt bourbon and maybe a cigar. You seem unnecessarily bitter. If you don’t like the steel you can just use others. There are plenty of options. I haven’t had your experience with Lc200n, and though I’m never at the booth of the ocean, I like it in summer because I sweat profusely and get rust in the pivots of my folders. Lc200n is nice since I never to have to do anything with it.I get that everyone is always sitting in a pool of saltwater but for those of us not living at the bottom of a salt pit what is the deal with LC200N? It's tough? it rolls like dough and chips like a bag of ruffles..to me tough means it doesn't chip when I cut cardboard (no staples), and the blade doesn't roll every time I wipe the blade down with a tissue...I hear that people like it, I have a few SPY's with it, and it's really not much better than CmOV##'s. I haven't taken it to the bottom of the ocean yet, but it's being marketed as this great wonder steel, I get H1 is just the worst steel ever besides 440A but for EDC for most of the continental US, LC200N is really not a great choice for EDC in fact it's terrible for just about anything besides seriously wet and salty conditions, and then why would you really want a folder for a diving knife?
