I am looking at the Doug Ritter RSK Mk1. What I can not decide on is what steel to get. It is offered in S30V and M2. What are the pluses and minus of these steels?

Thanks in advance

As I understand it the M2 is a very tough tool steel without a lot of anti-coorosion properties. Once hardened it is a bit harder than the S30V. The S30V for me seemed like the way to go as a utility knife for corrosion resistance. Also I have another BM coated blade and under use the coating gets beat up. If I had the money for a "shelf queen" I'd prob have a M2 to go along with my D2 Grip.

They are both very good steels, with a slight edgeholding advantage in M2, but the S30V will be more corrosion resistant. Unless you are going to be using the heck out of this folder, you won't notice the difference between the two as they are both excellent.
