    Good call on the Sazarac rye! I haven't tried the basil haydens dark rye yet. Same with the Elijah Craig rye. But I am going to guess that they are pretty great.

    Try old Forrester rye. I've had it once at a friend's. Its very good. Should be in that price range. Also high west double rye. High west rendezvous rye. (60ish??) I'd recommend the rendezvous rye. Its excellent.

    Your steel sweet spot

    I would say a little more difficult. Its actually pretty easy to sharpen. But to be fair I always sharpen vanax on diamond plates. 50/40 micron Then 20/14 micron plate. Coarse strop compound to pop off burr. Then white and green compound. Followed with 1 micron diamond emulsion on ultra...

    Your steel sweet spot

    For me my overall favorite is Zwear for tool steel. I've used it the most. Super tough. Excellent edge holding for its class. 63HRC is awesome. 4V also fits in here. Same reasons just more edge holding. Another favorite is K390/CPM 10V class steels. High hardness thin edges are amazing. The...

    Dude wow. Absolutely spectacular work. Didn't know that about the 2 TI alloys. Very cool stuff. Its even more awesome that the san mai is functional for performance.

    I am very jealous. I've always wanted to try a single barrel from whistlepig. I've never even seen those bottles out in the wild! Definitely going to be a great score!

    LC200N?

    I'm gonna second that its a troll post. I run my LC200N at 60HRC (typically 60. Sometimes 59/60 by PHT) I've never had that issue. Its super tough. Super easy to get screaming sharp. Never chipped or rolled excessively like the OP states. Its one of my favorite stainless steels. A bit funky...

    I'll have to try that out. I do like sweet whiskey. Some can be too sweet. (Balcones baby blue corn whiskey- super sweet, definitely a dessert whiskey.)

    The whiskey tribe and Trade!

    Here's a few tips on an old fashioned. A precise jigger really helps. 1.5 oz bourbon (can also use 2 oz) 0.25 oz simple syrup (or to taste) 2 dashes of bitters of your choice Orange slice. Cherry (I skip the cherry) 1. Ice cube in lowball glass 2. Simple syrup onto ice 3. Bitters onto ice/...
