"CPM S30V is a martensitic (hardened) powder-made (sintered) wear and corrosion resistant stainless steel developed by Dick Barber of Crucible Industries in collaboration with knifemaker Chris Reeve. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. These vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. . . . Its composition is as follows: Carbon 1.45%, Chromium 14.00%, Vanadium 4.00%, Molebdenum 2.00%"
I just got it in but the auto button works fine. It stays in place when activated. I was a little concerned since it didn't have a safety lock for the auto button but it hasn't opened in my pocket yet. It wasn't very sharp but didn't take much to get a decent edge in it.
This is going to be biased because i like autos and this is my first auto knife but its a solid knife either way i like it a lot and think it is the best i did a lot of research on steel and different knifes and when i looked for autos it always kept popping up so i bought it and i am 100% satisfied
Pleasantly surprised! Very nicely designed. Solid feel and action. I would recommend this. Good value for $$
Aluminum handle surprised me with a good grip.
S30v is worth the extra dollars for operating in high moisture areas like south Florida. Good lock up, fast deployment and a very light knife for carrying in any clothes. Is it a workhouse like the Gerber 06 auto....of course not but it is not meant to be. I expect alot of work and good things from this knife. Blade ops has good price and a timely and free delivery system in place.
I put a review on here but I guess it didnt make it. Anyways I just got this knife yesterday and took it to work today to see how it would perform. It is not the sharpest knife I have but today while I was cutting up some boxes I accidentally jabbed the tip of the blade into a stainless steel table and needless to say I didnt even want to look but much to my surprise it left a small slit on the table and absolutely no damage to the blade. That s30v makes a huge difference. I'm very pleased with this knife
My first Kalashnikov is white and has a black aus 8 dagger blade and snaps hard when deployed. This knife also snaps hard but not as hard. Also it came only semi sharp and makes springy noises when you push the button to close it. All in all it's an awsome knife but if you're gonna pay 30 bucks more for just the blade steel I think it should be shave sharp when it arrives
