    As a newbe I am still learning about knife steels. I like ESSE as a company and like their warranty.
    Am I to understand that the upcoming S35vn knife steel is not as good of a stainless steel for a knife as the 4 stainless steels you specified above?

    The steels I listed are all kinds of stainless that give excellent or very good toughness paired with decent edge retention while S35VN. CPM-154 would be the most wear-resistant of the ones listed but also least resilient, but it'd be tougher than S35VN. The other two perform much like a very tough carbon steel, but stainless. I consider AEBL and 14C28N the most in line with ESEE's overall design ethos and intended contexts of use. Click on the image below to go to a very nicely written article by a metallurgist on knife steel selection. :)

    I'd love to see the AGK in a stainless, has that been considered?

    That xancudo blade looks like it would be a nice hunting blade too.

    Yep. It foots the bill for an all-around outdoor knife instead of tacti-cool.

    Spear point, exaggerated half guard and opening in handle to facilitate blood draining while on a mission. Tacti-cool all the way.
