    I have not tried the sweeter fruits with mine. Perhaps I will use one of my unused 1095 traditionals on some sweeter stuff.

    I cut up some Steak on the weekend. It took a little processing for it to show up. It's a pretty faint patina.

    Nice!
    I haven't been able to get my CruWear Millie to stain at all. Used it at a BBQ to cut up some hot dogs, sausages and cheese and nothing. I'm really liking it as a steel though, takes a nice edge and holds it well. All the cutting at the BBQ was done on top of the actual barbeque and after there was no visible damage, and it still shaved.

    That's cool.

    I used the factory edge to cut it, and the edge seemed to wear a bit. It felt tougher to cut near the end. It was marinated in something sweet, I imagine the blood and sugar both did their work on the blade. It's pretty sharp now, I'll pay attention to the edge retention. Also, the EDGE could have been corroding because of what I was cutting.

    It was maybe 20 or so cuts through a 1" thick piece of meat. I was cutting it in 1/4" thick slices so that everyone could eat it.

    I like my Spydies shiny and have been reluctant to let a patina form on my non-stainless ones.

    But, having more Spydies than I can easily rotate in and out of use (I know, I know, a first-world problem), some have languished in storage and, despite their thin coat of oil, my M4 Manix2 and Superblue Caly 3.5 developed pits: miniscule ones, but pits nonetheless.

    To slow if not stop this worrisome trend, I have relented and forced patinas on my M4s and Superblues.





    I think I'll let a patina form naturally on my Cruwear Manix2 and my ZDP Stretch.
