Are any of you fellows (and gals) familiar with the M390 Super Steel? I broke down and bought a Benchmade Barrage 581, G10 and Al Handles, M390 Super Steel, Plain Edge a few days ago.
It is still too early for me to give a true evaluation of how I feel about it, but after a couple of days, I think it may end up being one of my favorite knives.
I sharpened it yesterday using Edge Pro to about 30 degrees. New profile and it did take some time, but I had no trouble getting a super Sharp edge on it. I like a somewhat semi aggressive edge so I never put a real good mirror edge on it.
This 76 year old man does not especially care about spring assisted opening knives, but again, I think I can get used to it and like it. I selected it on using these guide lines: 1) Had to be M390 steel, 2) Small enough for EDC, 3) And looks.
It is a solid extremely well built knife. Just a tad too heavy for me for EDC, but I think I will have no trouble getting used to it.
