We don't seem to see many Spyderco knives in this steel. The Native 5 has been in short supply for some time.
Any ideas why? Is there a supply problem for the steel? Is it economic and cost related? Are people complaining about S35V? Does the edge hold up OK?
When introduced, it was described as tougher than S30V, but with similar edge holding.
What is the story about S35V? I just got a fishing knife in S35V, but haven't had a chance to use it yet. I hope that I am happy with edge holding, or would I be better off forgetting S35V and just staying with VG10 or S30V in the future?
