Though the subject may seem stupid to some of you, my question actually deals with specific steels. What's the difference between 1095 and ATS-34? For a neck knife, which would you recomment, for all-around low maintenance, edge keeping, and rust resistance? What about O-1, or D-2, or BG-42, or M-2? What the hell's the difference, and which is the most expensive, and why? You see, I own a few knives, and always see these ads about which steel's superior, blah blah blah. But I really can't tell the difference, and I've got knives in ATS-34, AUS-8, AUS-6, and 1095. The only thing that's different to me is price. Then again, I'm not a guy who uses my knife heavy duty everyday. In any case, I'm thinking of getting a REKAT Fang in ATS-34 and was wondering how it would be better than its 1095 counterpart. Help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
