I put a photo up on the Spyderco forums.
Oh I know.
Have to finish that one up with the rest of the testing and then start on the Caribbean Serrated.
Sounds good. Looking forward to them.
Thank you, Jim and gine! I was expecting a high hardness, and it agrees with what Sal told us they were getting on the Military model.
I wonder what the smaller PM2 and Para 3 are Rockwelling at.
I have a Bull Shamwari in Twist Damasteel and it's one of the few hollow grinds that doesn't have that "bulge" you're talking about. Helps that it's ground uber thin, 6-8 thou for most of the edge with a thicker tip. The crazy thing is how thin it stays past the edge. It takes 5-6mm to pass 10 thou on the primary grind, never seen a hollow grind like that. I have a few Krein regrinds(Elmax para 2 and zt 770) that are at 5 thou but being FFG they thicken up rather quickly. Certainly wish more companies and makers made knives better suited to cutting. Microtech seems to have rather lean grinds(at least the 6 I've had were) and most South African makers stay in 10-20 thou range(Thorburn, Van Heerden and CPK from the ones I've seen) . You can have the best steel but if the knife geometry sucks it won't cut worth a dang.
This thread should be a sticky. I don't understand why it isn't.
Ask Kevin I guess?
Done. Hopefully it will happen. We all appreciate the massive amount of work that went into this thread.
Thanks, a lot of people have been asking for it for YEARS and it hasn't happened yet.
OMG it's been over 9 years now since I started this thing..
I agree! There is a lot of useful information in it.
Congrats Jim, and yes, thanks Spark! Great thread and certainly is nice and easy to find now.
You have Vg-1 listed two categories above VG-10
But I only saw cut results for the VG10??
Wow. This thread took me forever to read. Lol. I joined today. But have lurked on Blade Forums for years.
Thank you for the insight and time. consuming work this thread took.
