Another one arrived

Hmm.. It's a beautiful piece but cold steel has bad reviews about their metal quality plus that's a tanto point. If you use it often, do tell me how it holds up.

actually cold steel's AUS8A heat treat is pretty damn good. I can't say about the other materials and why they use only low end steels in their whole line up, but their AUS8A is certainly on par if not better than other maker's AUS8A.

Charlie, those are classic CS collector pieces for guys who are into CS. I remember those days when I was young and exploring the second floor of Sngarms at Trengganu St

Maybe I can give some insight to the recon tanto. I used it during my ns days for all sort of tasks and their carbon v steel is very good at their price point. Resharpening is very simple too.

they used to be made in the US and in carbon v, IIRC. The carbon steel blades are definitely easy to sharpen and great, the only thing was that one had to oil the exposed edges.

now it's made in Seki-City and AUS8A, AFAIK. So you lose a bit of toughness and edgeholding but you get corrosion resistance.

how do you like the kraton handles?

Had mine for 10 over years and it still look great. Handle well in wet condition and the rubber absorb some of the impact esp when we use it to chop. It's a perfect durian opener too haha.
