    I have an older Crucible FX. VG-10, Seki made. The Crucible II knives are made in Taiwan with AUS-8 blades. You could get a knife made with better materials, in a facility with better QC, for around the same price.

    I've got small hands (5'6") so it was a little larger then I like to carry (Delica, Native, Endura, CQC14, Manix 2). But it's a good, quality knife, easy to deploy and would make a good EDC for someone with slight larger hands.

    Let's clear something up about AUS-8 Steel.
    There is nothing inherently bad (or cheap) about AUS-8.
    Like every other Steel, proper heat treatment for the intended task is critical.
    Some bad knives are constructed with AUS-8 and some great knives are using AUS-8.
    AUS-8 is quite similar to 440C. Probably very slightly tougher.
    Nicely rust resistant and good looking.
    I like it because it takes a very fast razor sharp edge that really rips flesh.
    It does not seem to "hold an edge" as as long as some steels like O-1 or D-2 but, it touches up so easily and perfectly and with a great, ripping edge for a defensive knife.
    If everything ELSE is good with any knife...there is nothing about properly heat treated AUS-8 that will make it a bad knife.
    Just FYI.

    You are so WRONG in this post, it's not even funny! Everybody knows that if the steel doesn't start with a CPM and cost three times more than it has to, the knife is the Teh Suxor! Heat treating can't save a blade from being junk if you don't use the latest, bestest, expensivest, hardest, toughest, double-donginest steel!

    DUH!

    I was skeptical about my newest SOG being it is Aus-8.. but it holds an edge fairly well and will take an edge exceptionally well.
