I put a photo up on the Spyderco forums.
Oh I know.
Have to finish that one up with the rest of the testing and then start on the Caribbean Serrated.
Sounds good. Looking forward to them.
Thank you, Jim and gine! I was expecting a high hardness, and it agrees with what Sal told us they were getting on the Military model.
I wonder what the smaller PM2 and Para 3 are Rockwelling at.
I have a Bull Shamwari in Twist Damasteel and it's one of the few hollow grinds that doesn't have that "bulge" you're talking about. Helps that it's ground uber thin, 6-8 thou for most of the edge with a thicker tip. The crazy thing is how thin it stays past the edge. It takes 5-6mm to pass 10 thou on the primary grind, never seen a hollow grind like that. I have a few Krein regrinds(Elmax para 2 and zt 770) that are at 5 thou but being FFG they thicken up rather quickly. Certainly wish more companies and makers made knives better suited to cutting. Microtech seems to have rather lean grinds(at least the 6 I've had were) and most South African makers stay in 10-20 thou range(Thorburn, Van Heerden and CPK from the ones I've seen) . You can have the best steel but if the knife geometry sucks it won't cut worth a dang.
This thread should be a sticky. I don't understand why it isn't.
Ask Kevin I guess?
Done. Hopefully it will happen. We all appreciate the massive amount of work that went into this thread.
Thanks, a lot of people have been asking for it for YEARS and it hasn't happened yet.
OMG it's been over 9 years now since I started this thing..
I agree! There is a lot of useful information in it.
Congrats Jim, and yes, thanks Spark! Great thread and certainly is nice and easy to find now.
You have Vg-1 listed two categories above VG-10
But I only saw cut results for the VG10??
Wow. This thread took me forever to read. Lol. I joined today. But have lurked on Blade Forums for years.
Thank you for the insight and time. consuming work this thread took.
So did you confirm the actual HRC value independently for this test? Apologies if I missed this.
