Re: Help needed in steel choice: PM2 CruWear vs Rex 45 vs Maxamet

Is it the old grey sprint run or the newer black KnifeCenter exclusive? I really like those smooth scales on the KC exclusive. It's the older grey sprint, I love the color! Aaaaaaaaand I also got the Rex 45 god **** it the guy came with all 3 when we met up and I just couldn't, I had to have it aft...

Re: Para 3 Lightweight Exclusive/Sprint Hopes

K390 or some T15 type steels like S390, S290, Vanadis 60, HAP72. These can go like 68-70HRC. I'd like a more extreme REX45 steel.

Re: Help needed in steel choice: PM2 CruWear vs Rex 45 vs Maxamet

Maxamet will last longer than rex45, and much longer than cruwear in both coarse and fine edge holding. I also don't understand. In these tables, for Rex 45, molybdenum carbides are similar to Rex M4 and Rex 45 cobalt carbides are missing ? Cobalt is not a carbide former. I'm not a steel chemist in...

Re: Help needed in steel choice: PM2 CruWear vs Rex 45 vs Maxamet

How is Rex45 not a buffet of carbides? And leftover elements. Larrin did the calculations. https://knifesteelnerds.com/2018/11/19/steel-edge-retention/ https://knifesteelnerds.com/2018/11/26/steel-edge-retention2/ https://i0.wp.com/knifesteelnerds.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/bonus-carbide-volume...

Re: Help needed in steel choice: PM2 CruWear vs Rex 45 vs Maxamet

I've decided. I'm getting the Cruwear, Rex seems to be very similar to Maxamet, which I will be getting later anyway, once it will be available again from Spyderco this year. Thanks guys! Cruwear is great stuff. You'll love it. Is it the old grey sprint run or the newer black KnifeCenter exclusive?...

I own all 3 steels and REX45 has my vote.

Re: Pros & cons of Cruwear?

I like Cruwear a lot, but i like REX45 just a little more due to the higher hardness.

Re: Sal, are there any plans for another K390 knife?

I'd love to see some more K390 (or S390, S290).
Chaparral and Para 3 please :)

Re: Para 3 vs paramilitary 2

I own em both too and i prefer the Para 3. Blade is big enough for what i need to do most of the time and the handle fits my hand even better than the PM2. The Para 3 is also less threatening among non knife people. I have a Military in my jacket/coat that is with me most of the time so if i need a ...

Re: Which Golden made design for 15V debut?

I'd rather have K390 than 10V.
Or how about some S390 instead of going for all Vanadium steels. Seen some Russians get that up to 70 HRC.

I think it's nice but my least favorite handle.
How so?

It's my favorite material wise. I really like the smooth G10. It's just not my favorite color.

Re: Cutlery Shoppe Para 3 exclusives

Got mine today in the mail. My first Cutlery Shoppe exclusive and i am really liking the bright color. It's nice to have something that pops out among the standard colors for variety. The plain and DLC version both look great. I tried to make some photo's but the lighting sucks in the evening. They ...

Was really hoping to see that Cruwear Shaman.
Me too, but i knew it would be too early for that. Maybe the mid year catalog.
I am really interested in how the Micarta tests Sal was doing turned out. That will make or break this.

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

I think Shawn suggested to make the Manix LW the new Mule/special steel folder before. It's a good design and affordable platform. My only gripe with the model is that it comes with a pinned construction.

I would love a Para 3 in 15V. The PM2 and Para 3 sprint models seem to sell the best.
