I have been evaluating an M2HSS AFCK for a few months now, and no other blade among the current league of high-tech "tactical" production folders comes close to its combination of edge holding and toughness. I compared the M-2 AFCK to an ATS-34 AFCK and a Spyderco CPM440V Military for edge holding, toughness, sharpenability, and corrosion resistance.
This quote was made by Steve Harvey on the BM website. My interest in it is the way BM is starting to push this "new" knife steel. The actual steel has been around for some time, but I don't remember anyone using it for blades before BM.
My question to you (all) is: What do you think would be the response for a model 710, 4" Axis Lock, with M2 HSS? Given what Mr. Harvey has to say and the evidence he presents, wouldn't this be the ultimate tactical folder?
