Hopefully just the ones that are marked as something other than 3V.
The modern traditional series is a fantastic idea that's been well executed. Every interaction I've seen you have or had with you has been highly professional even when I screwed up on an order. I'm sincerely hoping this nonsense doesn't have any long term effect on your well being or your business.
Most of the time? Probably? I'd say with BRKT at this point it's a matter of you pays your money and takes your chances.
I have , which lead me to the lionsteel m4 as my decision. Are there some known issues with barkrivers?
Are you saying products marked as 3v are known to be something else?
Yup. Happened at least twice, that we know of.
Probably an accidental mislabeling, but not something that inspires much confidence.
I would prefer that this thread doesn't get derailed with Bark River, why don't you start your own thread in GKD, you will get plenty of opinions and answers to your questions.
damn, thats annoying
Thanks, no more on this in here.
Your attitude on the situation is commendable. I can't imagine what this debacle has cost you in sales of knives that were never defective. We can discuss the difference between 59 and 61 rc, but the steel doesn't become junk at 59 rc and the knives are quality.
That Barlow Lionsteel is back on the list. I hope that's true for lots of others.
Mike, I appreciate you coming here and taking the time that you did to address the concerns that were brought up here. You did so with a thoroughness and precision that your accuser couldn't be bothered to match. I won't speculate as to the character of the individual in question but I think the statements made speak for themselves.
My condolences to you and your family, I hope there is some good news in the not so distant future. The fact that you were willing to take the time to tackle this nonsense amidst your family tragedy speaks to the character that many, if not most, of us know you to possess. Please keep up the great work and know that my thoughts are with you and your family.
Late to the thread. Can someone catch me up?
By this point, I think we’re unanimous in agreeing that the testing group (which includes me) needs to be more responsible verifying and privately reporting low outlier hits, and there is still disagreement about where people would like to see M390/20CV/204P delivered in terms of hardness. We also agree that you seem to be happy, daddy.
I am very sorry for your misfortune. You and your family are in my prayers.
The only thing I can add to this discussion is that I have three of Mike's @knifeswapper SFO knives in M390, and they certainly behave as if they are the specified RC. I would not hesitate to buy another.
Mike - Best wishes for you and your family in these difficult times.
@knifeswapper - Mike, I’m sorry to hear you’re going through something terrible. You’ve always done right by me. I’ve bought several knives from you and will buy several more.
Smoke and prayers up from Houston - God bless.
One warning with points for trolling.
Proudly ordering a Lionsteel Shuffler from CK. From those I have talked to, seems Mike is an upstanding guy...and that knife has been begging to be mine for awhile now.
Amen brother. Unfortunately not everyone shows their neighbor respect, especially under the cloak of anonymity.
I love hearing about the extra care/rigor peters takes to ensure their equipment is up to snuff. The lab I run is more of a high output lab, in a fuzzier field, so we don't perform nearly that level of scrutiny on our equipment, but we know the limits of the the data's reliability and what we should do with it. When we need to "go after someone", you get your "A" game on and act like an analytical lab that performs to ISO, AOAC, FDA BAM or some other higher level of standard.
I hope this works out as best as possible Mike, but more importantly that there is good progress in the healing in your more important personal circumstance.
