Maybe i need to re-think my corrosion test strategy...
It's pretty clear that I won't be able to get the Salt series to rust with my current "salt spray" test, it's been pretty well established that under normal (and even some extreme) situations, H-1 *will not* rust....
I'm probably wasting my time trying to get H-1 to rust, so i got to thinking, the salt-spray corrosion test *is* useful and can return useful data (re; my first corrosion test that killed a Sheffield hawkbill cheapie in one hour, and a CCC butterfly knife in 24 hours), so why not use the testing chamber to test *other* Spydercos/Byrds
I'm thinking that maybe i should test some of my lesser used Spydies and/or some inexpensive Spydies and Byrds
knives i already have and can test;
AUS-6 Jester (Forest Green FRN)
8etc... Byrd Meadowlark (black coated)
Inexpensive knives i could purchase and test and not feel bad about damaging
S30V Native (wally-world native)
knives i *need* to test, but can't bring myself to damage;
any VG-10 blade
ideally, what would be cool is to find a way to get a selection of steels from Spyderco, i'm thinking the disc of metal cut out to create the SpyderHole, i'm assuming the SpyderDisc is either thrown out or perhaps sent back to the steel production facility to be recycled/remelted into the next batch of steel....
If i could get a few SpyderDiscs, that'd be a great way to test the corrosion resistance of the steel without sacrificing knives....
So, Sal, would it be possible for me to purchase a small batch of SpyderDiscs for a reasonable price? it'd make the corrosion tests so much easier
