I was thinking earlier . . . .

Is there the faintest possibility of CRK offering alternate steels for their knives? Probably not, but I can dream.

I'd love to have a Nyala in 1095 or 52100. That'd definitely be my ideal knife for outdoorsy things. I like simple steels.

There needs to be a subforum for CRK fantasizing.

Well, you can get some 3V from CRK right now if you like BIG knives ;)

Is there any reason CRK hasn't gone to S110V?

I'm guessing S35VN is a more "well-rounded" steel.

I actually prefer S30V over S35VN, I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way.

There was a similar fantasy steel thread a while back. Doubt we will see any exclusive but dreams can be made.

Chris participated in the development of S30V and S35VN-hint why he uses it :). It sharpens relatively easy and works well with his manufacturing process. Many of the new" super steel", don't field sharpen well and chew through belts. Some also aren't available in reliable amounts. The size of his operation may fall where he is not small enough or large enough to use some of these steels in a cost effective manner.
