    You forgot to mention if the food release nazi's will be happy with the grind

    The grind is NOT just about food release!

    That's what I thought was so sexy. I must cut like a weirdo robot because I've never used a knife that I thought was "too flat."

    Yeah, that's what appeals to me about the knife. The tip is high enough with some curve I think it could work fine as a slicer, but the back-end is flat enough and tall enough it'd be fine as a push-cutter. Worth a few hours in the kitchen to experiment, at least.

    Just did. We'll see how it goes.

    I think Butch Harner is using cts-xhp. I talked to someone who buy and sells steel and he said that the consistency between batches is something Carpenter is working on. -40cp seems like an interesting steel but very expensive for pm 440c, especially with more exotic offerings for less money! M390 though looks like it would make a great core for a san mai blade,IMHO.

    440c with a good HT is a nice steel even without the "p." I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be even nicer with smaller carbide size. "Exotic" doesn't make the steel. Not that I'm disagreeing (yet) but what is it about M390 that makes you think it's particularly nice?
