    Benchmade "Bone Collector"

    I am thinking about picking one of these up. Any of you guys own one?
    I'm unfamiliar with D2 steel is it a good blade steel for every day carry?
    Its like a Griptillian with G10 scales and D2 steel.

    Here is a You tube video that shows it. I'm thinking the small one would be my choice.

    I see that no one has piped in. I'm not a Benchmade fan, but D2 is a good steel for a daily work knife. It's not stainless, so it will develop rust if you don't care for it properly. It's a tool steel that typically hardens to Rc 60-61, so has good wear resistance and toughness. Bob Dozier makes his custom knives out of D2 and I don't think that he gets many complaints. :-) But there are newer knife steels that have better stain resistance and edge holding depending on what you need.

    I'm personally a fan of powdered steels which produce incredibly consistent blades with fine grain structure like CPM S30v and ZDP-189. They tend to sharpen to consistently keen and long-lasting edges. Although not cheap, ZDP-189 makes an awesome blade steel, sharpening to an incredible edge that really lasts. It's highly prized in expensive Japanese chef knives.

    Probably more than you wanted to know, but I hope that it helps.

    I keep hearing that people that buy these knives like them just fine.

    I'll have to check out ZDP-189 blade steel. After doing a little research on D2 it seems to be a pretty good hard use steel.

    Thanks for your input guys.
