CPM-3V Elliott irons ()

..the 3V looks to have been a good choice (based on the edge wear progression pictures on Beach's page). I came along too late to get one (but making one is always an option, and would be if I was looking for turbo steel).

Some of the others like the chinese HSS, the hobart australia blades, etc. also did really well.

I think steve knight may have missed an opportunity to make stanley type irons with the process that was being used for his, but it would've taken some marketing.

LV's efforts (I'd call the steel a lot like a potentially improved friodur 440C based on how it feels on the stones, though I don't know if friodur ever admitted they were making cryo treated 440C) also have made a nice fine iron.

Like the term - "early sharpener". Very seinfeld-esque. Close-talker, regifter, early sharpener....

It does seem like we've lost a little bit of the zest that was around 10-15 years ago when more people were tinkering.
