    Well after not hearing back from Spyderco from my phone call and email, I called customer service at Knifecenter and posed the HRC question to them after explaining that I was on their pre order list for the upcoming N5 S110V. The service rep placed me on hold to check with their product rep and came back with the info that they did not know for sure, but if they had to guess they would say 58~59. So... Seems to be a bit of a mystery at this point.
    Best....

    Sal might not want to do a whole lot of speculation. He usually reports to us the results of ones he tests. With the worldwide instant communication any erroneous claim or plain mistake gets amplified , repeated and thrown back. I for one understand that approach. It means that when Sal says it you can count on it .

    If he says something like " it should come in around...." it would be at least after some sample knives were made with the heat that was decided upon and tested, found to be workable and repeatable for the heat treat folks.


    He is likely pretty busy this time of year as well.

    Agreed, Joe. Sal does it right.

    I know you mean the shows and such, but the guy just goes and goes.... I wish I had that kind of energy.

    I for one would never doubt Sal. I look forward to hearing more about the HRC and other salient facts about the blade like many others. After all, it's the heart of any knife really!
    Cheers...

    He must be a pretty good traveler too. Personally it stresses me out to the point of needing a vacation after I come back from vacation.

    Besides, staying busy will keep him young. Too much time off is bad for most people.

    I hear that. I used to travel better. When I was younger I took a business trip to Japan. 19 hours iirc. I was fine. These days I'd rather drive 11 hours than fly 2. I set my own schedule, take a break when I need one. Still tiring, but not like flying.

    Yeah, our "vacations" used to be busy, busy, busy. Had to see "everything". I also needed a vacation from my vacation... This one upcoming I plan to sit on the beach and not move until we go out to dinner

    True, though I'm doing everything I can to become the exception to that rule.

    Did anyone ever find out any more info on the micro-structure and HRC values of Spyderco's s110v? I ordered the manix in s110v and am curious about what it will be stable at and edge retention. I am thinking about regrinding it to .010" but am not sure if that would be wise or not.

    Nice. I can say that I really have noticed a difference with my S110V Manix compared to anything else I own. It seems to hold its fine edge longer than anything else I own. 204P rarely needs sharpening to be useful, but I find it loses its shaving edge very quickly. MT 17 and 18 have not been used much so I cannot comment on S110V there, but I am really really appreciating S110V.
