    I'm sure elmax is a step down. But elmax is still one of my favorite steels. Now let's talk a bit about this new steel I got my hands on. Maxamet. Oh how I am liking maxamet. And I really don't want to say that out loud.

    I'm not hating on Elmax, it is a great steel. I didn't mean to hate on it if that's how it came off. I just wanted a little more blade retention since this will probably be my only U/T... I have some inside lines on some great new reate/Alliance/Liong mah exclusive knives I need to save for.

    Maxamet is great steel!! Tool steel and very durable from what I've read. I hope to get something in Maxamet someday!

    Oh I know my friend :)
    It is a softer steel compared to some other super steels. But it sharpens so nice and I feel it’s a great balance of holding a edge and ease of sharpening.

    Nope didn't take it that way my friend. I'm just one of a few that really miss elmax. It was a wonderful steel in my eyes. I am really sad to see it go way the wayside. And maxamet is some strange stuff. Has me just waited to put an edge on it. I'll wait till the factory edge goes but I'm jonesing to put it on the kme.

    Same here. Love the stuff, especially when it’s got a good HT, like MT’s Elmax had

    I had the stormtrooper and it had elmax. Sold it. Kicking myself. But I did get top dollar for it so shouldn't complain. Just wished I had picked up another one in elmax before they disappeared. Now finding one in elmax is like seeing a unicorn.

    Testing out my new folding cup from Sea to Summit.
    Works great, no taste, feels stable when drinking.
