I could do that, but then I wouldn't get the opinions from other people that may know the answer to my question.
Plus my money tree has shed all it's money and I'd have less money if I bought something that didn't work like I had hoped.
So, If you have had experience with these 2 steels please...
I currently own a Buck knife with 420HC and would like to try one of the Kershaw Scallion knives.
My Buck didn't want to stay sharp at first but after some time on a diamond stone and a few month of using it.
It now holds a pretty decent edge if you use it like a knife and don't abuse it. You...
Yeah, I posted this on the SpyderCo forum as well.
I just trying to get as many people input before buying my FIRST $30+ knife.....hahaa
And thanks for taking the time to post again here.
Every little bit of info helps.
So I'm ready to move up in the steel world.
I'll try to make this short and simple.
I'm looking at the Delica 4 in VG-10 steel.

I don't want to carry a bottle of oil around with me.
I want to wipe it down with fresh clean tap water
I've had a few knives in the past but nothing you would call "High Quality/Price"

I have a NKCA 1983 Case knife .

It has slight scuff marks on the blade from opening and closing it.
And can most likely be polished out.
Never used, or Sharpened.
I am clueless on knives, and hope...
Thank you guys.
I think you gave me a path to start on.

The edge was gone at the end of the week from cutting WeedEater Line and every thing
else I gut on a daily...
Is the Benchmade AUS-8 steel, as good or comparable to the CRKT steels?
I just purchased a Mini-Ambush (My first Benchmade). I currently own a CRKT(AUS-4). I really bought it to see IF there would be any real difference in the performance.
The only down side I can see with the Benchmade is...
Figured it's time to introduce my self.
I've never owned any real expensive knives.
I have a couple case knives, older given to me.
I picked up the Gerber big Rock for $30.00 this week end at Bass Pro.
I figured it was worth a shot, and owning a few other Gerber's in the past.
They seem to...
