We will share all the info on the steel as soon as we get this first batch back from heat treat and perform our in house tests. That is all info we will disclose in time. As for the mystery steel....that will continue to remain a mystery as those are still being passed around and evaluated outside of the forum.. You will see a video on those coming up soon from Tim at Everyday Tactical Vids. Simply put, we are still evaluating our steel options for future development. We feel this whole process is a step TOWARDS our customers....We have heard requests for new steels for a long time and we have been reluctant to move in that direction bc of our background and history as a company. I don't know ANY OTHER company that has as much Dirt Time as we do. We spent over 100 days in the field last year actually doing stuff....from survival to SAR we are outside using and evaluating gear. To say we are engrained in our belief in 1095 is an understatement but we also realize that we must meet our customers where they are.... We are stepping toward them to meet that need in hopes that they will step towards us.
