Case slippies (Case CV Vs. TruSharp Stainless)
I've always loved the look of the Case slipjoints, classic old-fashioned lines, shiny bolsters, jigged bone, and a jewel-like finish on the blades, so I decided to pick up a Medium red bone "Pocket Worn" Stockman, it looked great, and had a decent edge on it, I was looking forward to trying out Case's Chrome Vanadium steel, as I've heard it's easy to get Scary Sharp and takes a killer edge
When I got home and did some research online, it turns out that this particular knife has Case's TruSharp Stainless, *not* Chrome Vanadium, so needless to say, I was dissapointed, I have plenty of stainless knives, and I really wanted to try a good high-carbon steel in a classic slippie design
So, I ask you, O Steel Gurus, how does Case's Stainless Steel stack up compared to CV, I know CV will need more care and this doesn't bother me, I want a knife capable of taking a killer, Super-Scary edge, I really do love the looks of this knife, as it's a real classy looking classic design, but if CV steel is superior in performance, I have no problem returning it for a different model with CV....
