    Pro volunteer at at sushi bar here. Only pass around I've tried was Salties Mizuno. Could be fun to try something different.

    Hey folks,
    sorry, went through my routine again - got a cold, got busy and overwhelmed with work, so the response is a bit belated.

    I am going to stop soliciting testers as of this point. I will take a look at all post in this thread and get a list going. It will be at least 2 weeks before this project comes to fruition - I need to send out 52100 passaround first, plus not much spare time at the moment on R&D, but I will get it done eventually.

    I will keep this thread current once the carbon passaround is out.

    Thanks everybody,

    M

    SKD12 is equivalent of A2 and is a conventional steel, not PM.

    That said, yes, I am offering A2 as a choice, and think it is an excellent steel for certain type (and purposes) of knives.

    Still working on HT recipe for PM #2, but preliminary testing puts it all the way up there - it will definitely be a steel I will offer soon, just need to get HT finalized first.

    Looking forward to the results, and am curious what prompted this, was there something that AEB-L or CMP 154 didn't offer? I would like to get a gyoto in the 210 range in a non reactive steel that my wife could/would use. I was thinking of the AEB-L but now think I will wait

    The PM#2 is a very promising steel. I would say with a great degree of certainty that it will be offered in the near future. I need a little more time to heat treat and test it, but preliminary results have been very positive. Sharpenability, sharpness, edge stability and wear resistance are its strong points.
