Model number indicates AUS-8A steel and not the CTS-XHP steel.
That’s most likely why it’s here, in the returns. It was listed incorrectly on the original sale:
There were lots of unanswered questions about the type of steel used. Tip of the day… Bet that it’s NOT the “new” CTS-XHP steel.
Having said that. They are real nice knives and at a “steel” at $100.00!
