    Don't post here or comment very often , mostly just read and learn
    like most I use knives everyday and stay attached to my old blades
    never needed any super steels or the like but maybe I'm just too cheap and
    I never minded sharpening

    A generous member here gave me a forgecraft mod he'd did and currently
    Infact for the last year and start of the new it has been my favorite knife because it suits me
    fits my hand and to be honest I love it

    My son bought me a mora eldris for a gift and I've never been much of a stainless man but
    I have to say that little knife has won me over , three deer dressed and skinned not to mention the trout and countless pealed taters and a light stropping keeps her going strong

    So now I'm wondering while giving myself knife mange if maybe I should treat myself to one of these new fangled super steels just to see how it works , who knows I may find I'm high tech after all. Humbly. Tom

    There's nothing wrong with wanting or using a high quality item, there's nothing wrong with being content with what you have.

    And by the way the knife I've spent all this time with
    is the one you gifted to me. Ptpalpha , it works for me perfectly
    and fits my hand like a glove. Humbly , Tom

    Kindness is a wonderful thing isn't it?

    I say go for it if it suits you.
