    This thread is to count how many are waiting a 6" fixed blade from Lionsteel...
    and to know what kind of knife do they aspect.

    K490 seems to be very poor in corrosion resistance....I don't understand why don't consider something similar but with a valuable rust resistance....

    Hope an hypothetical M6 will be in Elmax....or something better (if existing)
    .....or maybe not: should I be aware of K490 or not about pitting...rusting....???
    Any opinion about this?

    Lionsteel can do better than K490 (O1) Steel.

    Right Michele! tell us more about this fantastic steel: tell us about the K490...why should we adopt it as "reference" for a field knife

    Yes....it will arrive (same name or not) but it seems Lionsteel hasn't any hurry in releasing it!
