What do ya have? i don't use staniless blade steel, but I am always interested in handle materials. I was talking with someone one of the forums the other day about NS and it's cost relative to that of 416. He told me that when you can find it, it is stupid expensive these days.

Not only is 416 easier to work and finish it will hold the finish longer,and if you take the time to harden it even better.
