Finally I found a way to enter the blog again...
anyways a few more blades
I still use O1 and other carbon steels... but Bohler N690 will be next
a little stainless won´t hurt I guess
why are the blades mostly gray..well I do etch them ... gives them better rust and stain "resistance"... but O1 and other carbon steels like it will stain and rust if you don´t take care of them
at least that´s what I have experienced.
etching is not like a coating but better then leaving them all shiney
