    S30V and S35VN aren't all that much different. S35VN is definitely a slightly better steel, but there's nothing at all wrong with S30V. I'd just get whatever's cheaper and you can find in stock. If you're not finding it in S35VN anywhere it's probably because they switched to S30V. The good thing about S30V is that it's easier to sharpen than S35VN. S35VN is a royal PITA to sharpen.

    Damn it @Jake .... The more I look at the Coalition, the more I think I want it over the Para 2..... I've had my mind set for months and you had to fuck it up....

    Get both! Technically they are 2 different kinds of knives. The Paramilitary 2 is a folder and the Coalition is an auto folder. That's how I'd justify it in my mind anyways.

    True that. But I already have the Entourage.

    And the Mini Coalition isn't that much different.

    S35VN is just a fucking asshole. It even sucks to sharpen on the KOWS.

    Damn, I had never noticed that. They are the same knife, just one is a TE and one is a drop point.

    I've never had a knife with S35VN so I'm glad y'all are telling me this. I've just always heard what a good steel it was.

    What I linked was the Mini Coalition. They make a full size Coalition too.
