    Have you seen the musk ox paring knives now at EE? They look like they'd go beautifully with your collection.

    Bill, I'm curious, especially as 15n20 and 1080 steels are used so often for damascus -- which of those two steels do you think makes a better monosteel knife, especially for kitchen use?

    Ive googled and don't find that out. I see a lot of MS favorite 52100 for monosteel. But 52100 is an animal; it doesn't play well with others, hell it doesn't play well with its own and as I understood from a post of Ed Caffrey, it reacts very poorly to overheating (is this why integrals are a pita on forge welding on 52100?)

    Why will you have a blade in 15n20 or 1080, when there are so many really great steels out there?

    Because 1080 and 15n20 are much easier for us newbie knife makers that don't want to send our blades out for heat treat. If anyone really familiar with HT wants to jump in here, please do.

    of the two steels that you mention I would choose 15n20 for a monosteel knife. I have found that it is a very good steel on its' own with a good heat treat.
