The evolution from steel snob to steel agnostic is one I will probably never fully undergo, but I am much less critical of steels than I used to be. Lots and lots of use has shown me that small differences in performance are virtually unnoticeable and that steel upgrades are more for marketing than anything else. So that you better understand the position I hold now for purposes of reading my reviews, I am going to spell it out here. It is basically trying to incorporate Larrin Thomas’s work at Knife Steel Nerds into my thinking. For those that live in reality, science-based and evidence-based thinking is best.
