It sharpens and polishes easier than VG-10, and, in my experience, holds an edge a little better too. And I have yet to stain it.
I have had several nice folders from Italy, From Benchmade to Fox, with this steel. It's never disappointed me.
I have modified all three. The small Spydy hole is useless for opening the knife. However, you can buy thumbstuds (hole is 3/16" .1875") that makes this a true one hand opener. Look over at Knife Kits. I have to file just a touch off the flats to get it to tighten, but they fit perfect. A little Blue Loc-Tite and I have never had one come loose.
I have an orange version of the Pingo that I installed the thumbstud onto, but otherwise, left it stock.
I have two Black FRN's. One I put a set of Carbon Fiber with Red GH-10 liners on, and a designer pivot, no clip. One that I put a set of Toxic Green G-10 with Black G-10 liners. Milled a cutout for a small Spyderco pocket clip so one screw would hold it tight. Decided not to use the wire clip just because I wanted this different than stock. Then used a designer pivot, NO thumbstud.
I am making Kydex neck sheaths (just to have. I make Kydex sheaths for all my smaller knives).
With the thumbstud, these are near perfect small folders, slip joint or not. Open and close, with one hand.
Light, great steel, and excellent blade shape for EDC, what's not to like.
As far as sharpness goes, out of the box the blade was ok. A few passes on a sharpening rod should fix that real quick.
The locking mechanism is pretty stiff. Which is nice considering it's a slip joint style knife.
Once opened it takes a good bit of pressure to close it. A bit more than my SAK Hunter.
There is also a halfway detent point at the 90 degree point. So that gives you added security in case the blade does close accidentally.
Just be aware that this is a SMALL knife. Don't expect something like a UKPK. This will definitely become part of my EDC rotation.
I've had this knife for a few months now. I couldn't stand the lump on the bottom of the handle any longer, so I filed and sanded it away. The handle is perfect now, at least for my hands. Please see attached photo.
It is a 2 handed opener, and the opening is easy with plenty of blade to grab onto. I find no safe and practical way to open 1 handed.
I wouldn't pay full price for one, but they are neat knives
It was incredibly sharp out of the box, opens smoothly, fits in my hand well (large-size glove wearer), and stays firmly in place when open despite the non-locking aspect. It's also a unique and different design and a conversation starter. It clips in the pocket nicely, and goes well with nearly any attire by being fairly benign in appearance (and if it doesn't, it's small enough just to drop in your pocket anyhow). The size is just right for me, I couldn't see going smaller, yet a larger knife seems whole unnecessary given the Pingo's capabilities. I carry larger and more expensive folders at work, but even without the laws I think I'd still choose the Pingo for carry around town as it hits that sweet spot.
