    Got a SOG Field Pup coming in.

    One of my first high quality fixed blades besides my issue Ka-Bar.

    The new ones come from china, but if you can find an older one, they are in AUS-8, so you'll get a great blade.


    This knife is just simply beautiful. I had to buy it immediately.

    Well, I managed to get the AUS8 one.

    Sog changed the steel and didn't inform the place I bought it from, so they had to pull in an aus8 one from another store they share products with.

    Now, I think it should be here today.
    I hope.

    i have a love of carbon steel as well. being a knifemaker, i will work with stainless, but much prefer the carbon steels. tool steels are my favorite. here is my latest creation. the Slim Chance In Hell. complex grind and simple wrapped handle. like handmade boots and old, worn jeans.

    Vulcan in VG10
    No AUS/440/8cm steel for me.

    Of the non stainless varieties I have a
    CRKT FTWS in SK5.

    I would prefer D2 this one does take a nice edge but does require maintenance.

    Folders, my EDC is a Spyderco Endura in VG10 and a Benchmade Barrage in M390

    There is so MUCH info about knife steels. Dont sell yourself short. Get good Japanese or American steels.
    I personally stay away from 99% of Chinese and Taiwan made steels.

    And another big thread could be all about sharpening.
