    We don't need to listen to you. We did before and you allready proved to be a jackass.
    When I can get the cash moneys to buy better equipment I will.

    Edit: But, hell. Like anything I say over the lowly internets would have any effect on you guys. I'd need to show up at a throwdown just to be listened to around here.

    Although instead of trying to rape me over the internet you could try educating me on the higher levels of weaponry.

    We might if you weren't pretty much a lost cause.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    You want to be educated? Well you bought is trash, 420/440 Stainless steel for the blade is crap.

    AUS 6M/8A Stainless Steel is very good for blades.

    You sir should be banned from the armory.

    If there's a knife steel debate starting, might as well start a new topic. It'll go on for 20 more pages.

    Wataru, if you're serious, you don't have to spend a fortune to get good knives. Off the top of my head, Google these phrases and names and get back to us. Each is going to give you information on solid, capable knives that don't cost tons of money.

    "Spyderco" Spyderco is all you need to know. They started the one-hand opening trend and the pocket clip that's now on almost every production folding knife offered. They use great steel. Their knives are ergonomic, tough, smooth, and wonderfully engineered. Sal Glesser is a genius and an honest man. And they sell their knives for low prices. A $40 Spyderco Native is the equal of knives costing three times as much.

    "Columbia River Knife and Tool" or "CRKT" is good stuff for cheap prices. They use pretty good steels and offer many licensed versions of custom designs by people like Kit Carson and Brian Tighe.


    On the other hand, here are some words to avoid. If you see these words, RUN:
    "Bud K Worldwide"
    "United Cutlery"
    "Gil Hibben" (he was a very good custom maker, but he licenses his name for utter junk.)

    Also, anything marked "Pakistan" is junk. "China" or "Taiwan" is probably junk, but Taiwan especially is improving and several reputable companies make knives there now. And anything marked simply "Stainless Steel," "Surgical Steel," or "Rostfrei" is probably crap, along with anything modern marked with a famous knifemaking city like Sheffield, Toledo, Solingen or the like. Those cities are no longer bladesmith centers and are now more likely to be making forks and dishwasher fittings.

    Now, seriously, if all you want to do is put something on the wall, J stainless steels are fine. (This is the same stuff often marked "Surgical Stainless" or "Surgical Steel."
    Similarly, if all you need is a shank with which to gank people, bad steel is not a big deal. You don't really need to hold an edge in that situation, and you're not going to be crossing swords like Duncan Macleod, so if it will take a sharp edge, it's probably good enough. But if you're going to open packages and cut up your snacks, like I do, you're going to appreciate good steel. I bring my carry knives to a "hair popping" edge, meaning I can shave my arm and watch the hairs pop up off the edge. This gives me mangy-looking arms, but it also means that I need good edge-holding abilities for that edge to last any time at all.

    Your J2 steel could take an edge close to that sharp, but it would not hold it. That stuff can barely be hardened, much less tempered. It makes fantastic playground equipment and refrigerator doors, which is why they make so MUCH of it, which is why it's dirt cheap and easy to get, which is why the Pakistani sweatshops use so much of it.

    Unless it's raining, snowing, or you're a Russian (In which case it's probably snowing. Russia sucks), why the hell would you want to wear a trench coat?
