    I'm a fan of 440C or D2 steel blades.

    If your into making your own, and need a source for suitable stock. Bedframe rails for boxsprings are a much higher grade steel than you might think, and make better blades than you might expect. Old reel type lawnmower blades are high quality steel also. If your on a low budget, or have no budget to speak of, you can still get a pretty good blade out of them.

    No need to divulge your source.

    Lord knows D2 is tough, it was considered for manufacturing but for EDC I like more corrosion resistance. S30V - like everything except

    Mea Culpa - Threetango - I saw your post today, is there a difference between you & just "Tango ?"

    Could be me, I get names wrong all the time. :)
