Yes, it says around 58 HRC.

Seems like he could have gotten more out of the steel running it a few points higher. 61-62?

Regardless, it looks great. Congratulations!

Yes, that's what I thought as well. But I really wanted to try some S90V steel and I couldn't find any other decently priced knife in that material (though I think there will be some kind of sprint run of Manix 2 XL in S90V later this year).

Aside from the a little bit too low hardness, it is a really well built and solid knife so I'm definitely happy with it.

Yep, also a Yojimbo 2.

Easy fix for the hardness. Send it to Paul Farner. He is awesome just to talk to and a wealth of knowlege.

I sent a BM 581 Barrage in M390 to him recently to go to 62. I'm excited to get it back to say the least.

If you had only thanked Mark I might have been a little miffed... :angry:

Just kidding. I really do just want to see some others with more input over there, and I appreciate what Mark and others have done. Would like to see a bit more... there's a lot of smart people in this here forum....

Sorry for the thread hijack. :blush:
