    I like that you test knives like this. I also like that I really don't have to look at what steel you've used on each knife. I'm comfortable buying any model in any steel and knowing I've got a damn good knife that'll last a lifetime.

    Hell, I'll ask to be buried with my favorite when I can figure out which that is......just in case I can bring it with me.

    Thanks! I do this testing so my customers don't have to. I also do this to be sure it's the best quality product I can offer.

    Scott - shouldn't it be "I don't use a hammer to make knives, I use a hammer and a .41 magnum revolver to test knives?" :D

    @true north the magnum is only for high impact steels but I see what you are saying.
