Banchmade Article on Blade Steels

I thought this might be of interest to the edge-heads on the forum.

Did they mention anything about barrel steels and chop saws?

Just Kidding...

Its actually a good read for Benchmade knife owners to get to know more about their blade steel.
Benchmade makes quality knives.

Not sure how many picked up on this in the article. They reference another knife steel research source, Knife Steel Nerds - Metallurgy and Testing of Knives and Steel. if you haven't looked at this page, you might want to. Some of the best research I have found regarding the myriad of steels.

The dude who runs that web page is Larrin Thomas. He's a metalhead who knows a lot about metals, and does a lot of testing on blades and edges. He's pretty active in Spyderco's forums. I've learned quite a bit about metallurgy from him, and when he says something, you can bet it's fact based rather than just gibberish on an Internet forum.
