Spyderco Gayle Bradley 3.5 1/8 CPM M4 I think about 62 RC 15 1 micron boron carbide(HandAmercian) on balsa Top B EDC
 
Authors Comments:I like this steel. It takes a variety of finishes well but for EDC I like a congress 400 or the 1000 diamonds followed by 1 micron boron carbide paste on balsa the best. This seems to be about where hair whittling starts but it still has some bite. Hope you like it as much as I do.
