I'm really attracted to some of case's traditional-pattern knives, but the steel doesn't look good. I know that sounds stupid, but usualy I've found that a really bright, shiny blade usualy means a cheap, soft stainless steel. Are these knives available in good, old fashioned, high carbon steel? If not, what are everyone's experiences with the stainless steel in these knives? I think they call it true-sharp or something similar. I could be way off base, since I'm just going by apperance, so I'm sorry if the tone of this post seems negative...
