    Just curious to hear about any opinions on ZT's Elmax steel?

    I don't own any knives with this steel; however the consenses seems to be that it's a tough steel with decent edge retention and can be sharpened to a fine edge. ZT knives have a good reputation.

    Check this vid out, I was surprised to see such a poor performance out of the steel. He must have gotten a lemon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0ea5dFmZmA&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    I frequent www.bladeforums.com, where there are some pretty knowledgible guys about steel performance over there. I've seen several positive comments about this knife over there.

    As I said, I don't have personal experiencew with it, but haven't seen any comments indicating any problems with this knife.
