Yeah.... I've never complained about 420HC in a Buck, or 1.4110 in a Vic. I just quit buying them. Buck about 25 years ago. I've only bought three since then: two were BG42, one was S30V. That's it. I WILL buy a Vic occasionally. The Classic. It is great for tearing through tape on packages containing better knives, because that is all I use it for, and I can just leave the adhesive gum on it forever and not have to worry about it. Not a great way for a knife company to build a reputation.Like I was saying, 4034SS is a well known steel from a reputable foundry, you don't see anyone complaining about the wide selection of knives in Buck 420HC, or Victorinox 1.4110, complaining about the same type of steel when used by any other brand is just hypocrisy.
I've bought 12C27 safety razor blades. They work great. Love them.thought 13c26 was the disposable razor common steel?
I fear you have nailed it with this post. Unfortunately, I've only come into Cold Steel at the end... there seem to still be a couple of good blades, but I expect they are disappearing quickly.GSM is little more than a warehouse with a distribution system. Their business case is to sell $30 knives to Cold Steel collectors for $400 until they wise up, and then simply toss the stale brand after sales dry up. There is no future for Cold Steel; they died a couple of years back.
I was wondering why there was a chick in their latest videos. It certainly wasn't for her sword-wielding abilities.Cold steel advertised and promoted A2 models and then failed to produce them. Cold Steel came out and said 4034 was GREAT and CPM3V would also be made available. This was over a year ago. Thus far the only 3v Cold Steel I am aware of is the recon scout. 4034 in fixed blade models is available in Kukri Plus and Warcraft in different blade lengths. My question is: Where are the test videos??? Cold Steel is so sold on 4034 for it's large fixed blade where are the testing videos??? I looked for customer test videos and could find none. GSM is now following the tired and true marketing ploy of sex sells using a sexy model in some videos. GSM Cold Steel is sold on 4034, show us. And let us not forget Demko also promoted it.
That is for CERTAIN. Easy to keep a pair and a spare of just about every model.Yeah, that's more expensive than Manly city which is around 40€ or 50€ shipped. I'm in Europe BTW.
And Morakniv knives are kings of beater fixed blades.
