Nice EDC spread! It just keeps getting better, love that crossbreed and ZT!
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.
Thanks Brother !!
It really is great combo and I was in EDC heaven today
Elmax I feel is a great steel imo.
Got turned on to this today from a friend. If you like beer. You gotta give this a try. I don't drink beer much but I'm gonna be drinking alot more of this. Man this is some good $h!t.
I love your Microtech OTF what a beautiful blade!
BTW you influenced me into picking up a Microtech OTF . It’s on the way should be here any day Until then I’m going to keep you in suspense
That’s a great beer !! I really enjoy that and the Hazy
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.
looks great! I'm drinking New belgium Starship tonight!
Can't wait, I'm gonna guess you went Merlot two tone tanto or some other awesome combo......or maybe a troodon or UTX85....Such great knives!
looking forward to what you have on delivery; I'll wait and see!
Well...found a blade I like, so the RUK is back in my belt sheath and I now get to carry a brand new lockback!! Such an exciting day.
Hope ya’ll wake up refreshed this morning.
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.
I feel ya. My Tri grip UT in Elmax is hands down my fav UT still to this day
Damn... now I want to see if I can get my stormtrooper back.
Got 9 in the que.
Wilson combat 25 is next. Should have be Monday but its gonna be this upcoming Monday. Then a pair of slip joints. Then a lion steel. The a couple of CRKs and then a dr. Death mini then another set of CRKs. And I think another slip joint. Been thinking about a #97
Sounds like 2020 is going to be a great year over there!
Testing out my new folding cup from Sea to Summit.
Works great, no taste, feels stable when drinking.
