Inland, cruwear will seem stainless. Near saltwater though, you'll see some rust.
no doubt about that.
even 8cr13mov rusts as easy in that condition

Re: $142 Ultimate Sharpmaker setup worth it?

i also have the ultimate SM setup, I'd say buy the diamonds/cbn.. you'll definitely use it. I didn't have much use for the UF stones though.. made me wish I should have bought a good strop and some diamond paste instead

ZDP189 is not a stainless steel, almost all of the chromium is tied up into making carbides.

It was developed that way.
is why my cruwear is more corrosion resistant than my zdp?

Re: Fist in the Eye

I don't think there's anything wrong with S30V and I've never had any of mine chip. The fact that I find VG10 already an overkill makes this steel more than ample for my uses. What I don't like about S30V is how quick it loses its push-cutting sharpness compared to VG10 and I don't care much about t...

HAP40 optimal edge angle?

I have read somewhere (sorry, I forgot where) that the optimal edge angle for HAP40 is 15dps. Anything lower than that and the edge doesn't hold much. Based on your experiences with HAP40, how true is claim?

Re: Spyderco Users: Who wants VG1 stainless blades?

I will be interested in Spyderco's VG1 or VG2 if they will implement it as VG10-VG1/2 dual core like how Shun did with their kitchen knives as described here: https://www.knivesshipfree.com/shun-kni ... ki-vg0018/
seems like a very interesting idea
