Anyone using any custom knives with either steel?

Had a Spyderco Manix 2 in Maxamet.

Tough as CPM110SV, but not stainless.

Didn't hafta sharpen it much, but it seemed to sharpen a little easier than 110.

Went on a fishin trip, rained all day, no way to keep it dry.

Just a little surface stuff, but the 110 woulda had nothin to report.

A kid has the maxamet now, likes it.

The Manix Maxamet is a great little knife.

Maxamet is not quit as interesting to me as Rex 121. Rex 121 @ 70RC and not chipping and snapping is pretty dam impressive. Maxamet might be a great non-stainless option in production knives. The thing with these steels is a lot of really good knife makers have no or little interest in working with them. What I have seen so far from Rex 121 and to an extent Maxamet they are impressive. I love that Spyderco has never been scared to work with the upper end of the "Super Steel's" and with some great knife makers.

You can no more tell someone how to do something you've never done, than you can come back from somewhere you've never been...
