Re: A not-so-tough H1 experience..

interesting. perhaps the work-hardening result of grinding serrations in it made it brittle?

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...

Re: BD1N - My New Love Affair!

i have almost bought a yaxell santoku in bd1n myself but changed my mind and bought a kohetsu in hap40 (65hrc) instead in the last minute because i didn't like the sweeping belly in the model yaxell has. been hearing a lot of good stuff though with bd1n and i'm surely going to try it out in my kitch...

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

Re: I Like Me Some XHP

been using xhp in the kitchen (meglio) and it definitely rocks! the edge stays long and is quite tough.. much tougher in fact than my vg10 santoku (mcusta) being run in the same hardness. i figure cruwear will definitely excel over it a bit more

Re: fixed blade or Kitchen sprints

i have read somewhere about sal talking about lc200n to be offered in the kitchen line in the future and i totally agree that sprints should also be offered to kitchen knives particularly the santoku and the chef's. i'm thinking of cruwear, s110v or even the japanese hap40 and zdp

Re: So will my knives rust?

if you are worried about rust and edge holding, just get a carribean. I have a spydiechef that i don't even wipe down or wash since the day i bought it.. it hasn't rusted on me yet. this is the reason why LC200n is now my favorite stainless steel (used to be vg10)
