I must add that during a demonstration of the Knife out at Camp Mackall on Wendesday, Chris Reeve made a VERY HARD CHOP on a Chain Link Fence Post (Pipe) and left one hell of a gash in it !!! The cadre present were amazed, it barely disturbed the EDGE !!! After about 3 strokes on each side with a DMT sharpening tool, the edge SHAVED HAIR !!!! The CPM S30V is some really Bad Assed Steel !!!

Any questions, I'm sure Bill Harsey will be around to provide the answer.

A believer !!

Holy Crap, is that a standard chain link fence post? Like the kind anyone could pick up at a Home Depot or a Lowe's?

Yep, Chris just wound up and whacked the snot out of it with a $300 knife of his.

I believe that Harsey could have cut it down with that knife and his logging skills.

No visible damage to the blade. No nick, no chipping, no bending. A few strokes on either side with a ceramic stick, and it would pop the hairs off your arm again it was so sharp.

The thread:

I was stunned, and I own one.
