    Anyone have one of these? (Ridge Knife)

    I received one of their wallets as a gift and it is very well made.
    Their knives look interesting as an EDC but just looking to see if anyone has any hands on with this brand.

    I don’t have one, but it looks like a nice design. My first thought is that for $160 I’d probably be looking at a more established maker, and it wouldn’t be D2 steel.

    Can I ask why?

    Rust resistance? Ease of sharpening?

    Rust resistance is my only real hang-up with D2. The other reason is simply a personal opinion that for $160 I could be getting a much more premium steel. These days, $30 budget folders can be had in D2. Nothing against it beyond the rust potential, but I want something better for $160.

    Gotcha.

    I have several D2 knives... And only 1 of them has had any rust issues (a Kershaw JYD II). They're all stored and treated the same - but only 1 has had issues.

    I have learned a lot in the last week just reading on this forum and other blade related web sites.
    Definitely going top pass on the Ridge knife at this point. (Far better knives can be found for less $$)

    Blade HQ has some pretty good guides on the various types of blade materials available:
