Nice one Mike
12c27m is stainless steel with great corrosion resistance. I use a Mora Craftline Pro with Sandvick 12c27 for fresh water fishing, which has slightly less corrosion resistance than 12c27m, and it has performed very well and I’ve had no issues with corrosion. I live on the coast in Washington state and my 1095, 5160, and 52100 knives get pepper spots if you look at them wrong.
Sandvik makes some really fantastic steels for the price.
Awesome news! Thank you for the information.
12C27m is comparable to 425m with it's carbon on the high side of 425m range, but significantly less carbon than 440A. It holds a decent edge, fine grain, high corrosion resistant, but it's no VG10, 440c or MBS26. It's a good workable steel, won't chip, readily sharpened and steeled but not a premium material when it comes to edge retention.
I sorta, kinda, reluctantly bought one of these. I've wanted some Bucks in the kitchen for a long time but just don't need to replace what we have in the butcher block currently. I was very pleasantly surprised at this knife. It's a fine specimen. I'm really pleased with the ebony on it.
Good looking knife
This was a great choice for BOTM and they knocked it out of the park
No complaints with this knife, none at all.
There are 11 available now!
I read on further into the thread and saw there may be a discrepancy in the counts....
Nor do I. BUT.....
Last months folders were a first for me. I was three for three. Two of the three had centering issues, and all three needed to have the scratches in the Micarta polished a bit more. I actually wrote in to state pretty much what you said above. Got an apologetic note back from Matt telling me that he would walk them to warranty himself along with a prepaid label for them to be delivered right to his desk. Again, this was a first for me but three out of three was a bad sample.
Has anyone recently stated that customer service at Buck is nothing but the best?
Love the new knife but the old hollow grind wins the cheese slicing round. Pushes the cheese away and doesnt stick to the side of the blade like the flat grind does. More testing down the road. Im in trouble if they come out with the new handles on the set.
I love cheese
I could gain a few pounds because of this knife if I'm not careful, I better go purchase some veggies to cut up ...
I've herd a couple people mention the "old knife". Where is that knife from? A cutlery set or an old BOTM?
They're talking about the standard Buck 931 Chef Knife which features a hollow ground 420HC blade and your choice of either slate Paperstone, which is dishwasher safe and cheaper, or Red Wood DymaLux which looks a bit more premium and cost a bit more. Both are very reasonably priced for what you get.
Thanks fixall, I didn't realize the 931 was a normal offering.
OK... I did it!
I bought the last one available.
I would like to give a shout out to the Buck Customer Service Department. I had a problem with the finish of a blade and they were prompt, courteous and made everything right in the world. Buck Knives Company are a top notch organization and this experience reaffirms my love of Buck Knives. To the member who has 'bully' in their name; I own one knife with this kind of steel and it is perfect. Thankyou for asking.
Glad to help.
