    I don't think anyone has one of their most recent knives yet, do they?

    I think profile is settled. Now, O1, 52100, CPM154 or AEB-L?

    I'm voting for O1, because it's just great stuff, and it feels right. If that isn't scientific, I don't know what is. In all seriousness, O1 is very affordable and performs like a friggin' champ. It's kind of got a throwback feel to it too, and 52100 just doesn't patinate enough for my liking.

    My vote is only a vote in this case, Son. Haha. Seriously, I want the guys to get as close to exactly what they want as possible.

    Rick's suggestion sounds very solid!

    It would be great if an unhandeled version was avalible aswell!

    After using your handle on a Yosihide, I would gladly take a Twistington-ed handled version.

    O1 sounds good to me. However you mentioned that Lamson has a lot of experience with CPM154. Given that heat treatment is so important, would it be better to work with a material they are particularly strong in? For example, whenever AEB-L is discussed, KKF members will point to Devin Thomas' heat treatment as the gold standard. And many others' attempts are simply not the same.

    In that case, a definite O1 for me.

    I'm stoked, been wanting some O1 for a while now.

    Ok, O1 is a great steel. Bar none. It will hit the 63 HRC, but is safer at 61-62. Thin behind the edge is for sure do-able. The integral bolster is an issue cost wise. It, I believe as far as production goes, is a drop forge process. Otherwise its welded on. The issue is Drop forging is gone the way of the dinosaur. Pretty sure Lamson hasn't done it in a number of years (decades). To do it as stock removal would be cost prohibitive. If the goal is to make a knife in reach of the majority cost wise, pinned/peened bolsters are the best route. I will work up a CAD drawing of the blade tomorrow if I can. The handle is still up in the air from what I read.

    Keep the ideas flowing.
