A new folding blade, a new knife review! The Benchmade Nakamura 484S-1 replaces the Nakamura 484S in Old Man Metal's pocket, and he takes a side-by-side look at the two, including a comparison of the two super-steels Crucible CPM-S90V and Böhler M390. He also looks back on four and a half years with the Nakamura 484S, all while drinking a Surf Wax IPA from Burial Beer Company.
Old Man Metal’s Musings, Episode 3
Old Man Metal focuses on folding blades with a knife review of the Benchmade Nakamura 484S and the Böhler M390 stainless steel used for the blade on the third episode of his solo podcast, taking a deep dive into stainless steels, particularly modern powder metallugy "super steels", including an in-depth look at heat treatment, tempering, and the elemental composition of stainless steels and the effect those elements have on hardness, strength, toughness and corrosion resistance... all while drinking an Old Tuffy lager show beer from New Belgium.
