    Not too late...I'm still accepting deposits..shoot me an email (for my records).

    I will, of course, have to close it down eventually...but I'll probably leave it open over the weekend.




    UPDATE:

    The steel will be on its way to the WaterJet Guy on Wednesday next week.

    I already have a natural on reserve but really want to add couple more-being a lazy newbee what's CPM-3V? I can only assume I need it!-LOL

    CPM 3V is a super-steel made by Crucible using the "Crucible Powder Metalurgy" method. They make the steel directly from powder vs. smelting an ingot the traditional way. Their claim is that this process results in a finer grain in the steel. And frankly, I believe them. :thumbup:

    Which is why there's a difference between CPM-D2 and regular D2.


    But anyway...3V is super tough (impact strength), has good wear resistance and with 7% chromium in the mix....has a mild resistance to rust. It doesn't really tarnish at all....but will pit if left in water.

    Only one downside....expensive!!! :eek:

    Dan, is it too late to upgrade my bushmaster to 3v? Also, do I need to send the upgrade money now, or when the knife is finished?

    The CPM-D2 is not as tough as the 3V. I have a Charlie May knife in the CPM D2 and I love it but the steel is not as tough as the 3V by a long shot.

    Yes - I agree.

    But CPM D2 is tougher than ASI D2

    (sorry if my post was misleading...that was what I meant)
