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.

Gerber Freeman Drop Point 3.5" .134" S30V 56-58RHC 20 3.5um Bottom A.5 Field Dressing, Skinning
 
Authors Comments:This is a stout knife but doesn't hold an edge like I'd expect from the steel. I initially tried it at 17 degrees but had to go back to 20 to get it to last for an elk or two.

Spyderco Fred Perrin Street Beat 3.5 inches 5/32th of an inch VG-10, 59 17 degrees per side ceramics and strops 5 and 3.5 diamond paste Top B-1 EDC / Tactical fixed blade
 
Authors Comments:Fred Perrin is an ex-special forces France knife designer and he has made a scary little knife here. It is full flat ground, so needs special attention when mounting. I use chamois to fill the voids.
