    Thanks Cliff, interesting stuff. I book marked it and will take a harder look at it when my mind is a little fresher(long day at work). Every time I read your stuff, I absorb a little more.

    I think about this type of thing all the time but there are too many variables to get any kind of sharpening efficiency ratings for the different steels. I have an abstract formula rattling around...

    I might do that Deacon. I had to do a little digging to figure out when I first bought my fully serrated Pacific Salt. It was August of 2012. I was so smitten by this knife that other knives that I...

    I Love love my serrated Pacific Salt. I like H1 steel. I love VG10 steel.

    I wish I had a Pacific Salt fully serrated in VG10. I don't need the corrosion resistance capabilities of H1. tbh

    Thanks michaelm466, I love these kinds of comparisons.

    A Military sprint run in this steel would be off the hook. A small Military sprint run could get ugly.

    Great review, thanks.

    I feel that I have made some decent knife buying decisions the last few years but to pass on the sb Calys is a decision I still regret.

    As usual, it appears that I am in the minority. I like the smooth carbon fiber on my Caly 3.5.

    I have both the G10 and carbon fiber versions and I reach for the carbon fiber every time. It slips...
