Wow! Two sun, Harnds & Civivi knives are killing them on quality and price. Great!
LTK = numero uno!!

Leading brands dont put out junk knives with bad steel.we think.?😎 test .most people dont know.when buying a knive.

when it comes to steel reveiws go,you and Cedric&Ada are the most releiable,I think Super asteel Steve is on meth).aover all knife reveiws-you and Shabaz

I always love seeing these test results. Always something in the batch that surprises me. Thanks guys for doing the tests and posting the results. It is appreciated! 👍

harder is better for edge retention… but more prone to chipping. Maybe a big chip that effectively ruins the blade. Personally 61 is as hard as I would ever want 59 to 61 is ideal… for most all steals except real cheap steals. What would be nice LT is if you find certain makers that lie about blade steel lets do a video calling those vendors out. Isn't that really what this is all about. Ya so take all your videos and give us a summary of blade makers we need to look out for. That would be great! oops… maybe I should have looked at the video description first… but still would be nice to have a summary video compiling all the blades that are incorrect only.

I have a twosun kingfisher coming in M390..let's call it the megalodon of m390 with a 63.8..wow..I'm smiling now..thanks LTK
