BullsFan23 asked what knife should i get?

A sharp folding knife, thats made of good quality material.

And got the following answer:

Victorinox Swiss Army Compact. Nice sharp 3.5″ knife blade, other useful tools for camping, light and compact. Available widely for around $30. This is my favorite all-around camping knife. I may also carry a larger fixed-blade and a Leatherman multi-tool, but the Compact is always slipped into my pocket, where it stays unnoticed until needed.

Any of the Spyderco plain-edge folders would be a good knife. The Spyderco Tenacious can be found for around $30 and has a 3.375″ blade. The Spyderco Military is an excellent 4″ folder made from S30V steel and runs around $130.

I could go on from there if you give more details on what you’re looking for in a knife aside from sharp and good quality. In general, I prefer a blade that is on the tough side but not so much that it’s hard to sharpen, with a plain edge (serrated edges are a pain to sharpen) and drop-point or clip point profile.

ColeSloth asked What type of steel will give me a super sharp knife blade? ?

I don’t want something that will rust if you leave a fingerprint on it(some do) but definitely a step or three above 440C, which is pretty good.

I also would like to know the best company to buy from that makes knives with that steel. I’m looking for a folding pocket knife, probably assisted opening.

And got the following answer:

Go with kershaw if you want assisted opening. their sandvic steel can get scary sharp and is stainless, but its only about the level of 440C. If you have ~$150 to spend, got with Benchmade’s nitrous stryker. D2 is a very tough, sharp steel, but between stainless and carbon steel in rust resistance. Other steels to look at are vg-10 (spyderco, look at their wave feature), 154cm, bg42, s30v, s60v, s90v, and the absolute best are SGPS laminated steel (Fallkniven U2), zdp-189 (spyderco again) and INFI (Busse, VERY expensive but worth it).

SBrosofAmerica asked Which is better in a folding knife a d2 tool steel or s30v steel(benchmade knifes)?

please enlighten me

And got the following answer:

Those are both excellent steels. D2 has been around longer, and has always been one of the upper contenders for a nice balance between hardness and toughness. But the newer s30v is probably just a little superior in those categories. I remember reading that one famous knife maker (I fail to remember his name right now) has switched to s30v because of its excellent knife qualities.

That being said, either of these steels are excellent, but could both be screwed up if the manufacturer doesn’t heat treat it properly.

bob asked best folding pocket knife or best steel for them?

looking for a good pocket knife. i keep going through these 440 steel pocket knives with every day work usage. this will be my 4th. even when i use a whetstone they stay sharp for a short period of time but the edge does not last, 440 is too soft! what is a good steel to look for in a pocket knife? also what are some good brands. ive been using gerber and buck sofar. if you could recommend me a few mid/small sized knives i would greatly appreciate it!

And got the following answer:

There are a lot of steels that can hold the edge much better for different types of uses compared to 440A, 440B or 440C. 440 series are quite old by now.
Steel being soft is maker’s decision, and even the best steel will underperform if left soft.

M2, D2, CPM 110V, CPM 10V, ZDP-189, S30V they will all hold good edge, especially if you get them from the reputable maker.

Jon asked Using s30v steel blade to open tin cans and titanium handle to bottle caps?

I was just curious – if I used my new Spyderco Sage 2 s30v to open tin cans, would that damage the blade? And if I used the titanium handle to open bottle caps/beer bottles, would that damage the titanium?
I know that I can use proper tools to do those tasks, but what I want to know is if the s30v steel is string enough to handle opening tin cans (beans, etc), without being damaged. And I want to know the same thing for using the titanium handle to open bottle caps/beer bottles.

And got the following answer:

All steel is subject to failure. I don’t recommend using it to open up cans with. It will certainly puncture the cans of beans, but the knife won’t last as long if you do that continually. They aren’t designed for that kind of abuse. I’ve got a friend that had a similar knife, i think made by “Benchmade” that was made of s30v and it chipped from cutting wood. So I’d imagine that cutting another metal with it wouldn’t be such a great idea if you plan on keeping that blade for a while. I will say though, before I had my Leatherman Wave, I used a Frost Cutlery folding knife to do that exact job of opening cans. It was only 440 stainless and it lasted me about a year before chipping so badly that it wasn’t worth repairing. But a good example as to why you should use the proper tool for the job at hand.
As for opening bottles of coke/beer/etc. you shouldn’t have any problem at all. Titanium is pretty tough and I don’t think popping a bottle cap off will damage it much if at all. Maybe as much damage as a mouse can inflict on a brick in comparison.
Overall, it is capable of doing those tasks, just not if you want to keep your blade in nice condition.
Hope this answers your question!
