    Your SM will get ZDP sharp again, but it will take time. The trick with ZDP-189 is not to let it get dull. That said, Spyderco will sharpen it for $5. I usually takes just over a week. That's a lot...

    ZDP stays sharp much longer than VG10, which itself is a good steel. ZDP is not as corrosion resistant as VG10, though, and is not technically considered stainless. SB corrodes more easily than...

    The only advantage that autos had years ago was one-handed opening. Now, the Spydie hole is the most efficient and reliable one-hand opening system. Spyderco makes some very nice autos, but IMO they...
