Goin’ Native – a Preview

I met Shawn Houston at SHOT Show 2023, on my birthday in fact. We got to talking about steel and Spyderco (he is one of their designers), and hatched a project to do a practical comparison of blade steels on an otherwise identical blade. Step one was putting an identical edge on each of the 3 primary test knives (LC200N, Maxamet, and CruWear). Shawn Houston is a master at this, and besides sharpening, hooked me up with a strop, stickers, and case on top of all of that.
