    How about ACD73? It's a Hitachi steel, so there wouldn't be a problem there.

    Check out http://i.imgur.com/lQ5Po.gif (linked it because it's a big picture)

    That says it has A+ for corrosion resistance (vs. ZDP189 with A-), A for wear resistance (A+), and A- toughness (B-). That seems nice all around.

    actually does sound good, hopefully a more experienced metallurgist chimes in on that!

    I would love a blue G10 Caly 3.5 in SuperBlue or other fine steel (non laminate!). I can imagine myself walking around town with one in my pocket like F*%# yeah!

    dflores, got anymore extra gray 3.5 sprints laying around? My offer still stands, we did make a deal! =P

    Bolsters and jigged bone/wood for me. VG10 is fine.
