New blade coatings

Is anyone working with the new crop of blade coatings, especially those from Bodycote and the like? How are they holding up in real world applications?

I'm not, but Rob Simonich is sort of taking the lead in that world. I have one of his blade with the Boron Carbide coating, and it's holding up extremely well. They will eventually wear, but very little. Most often what you take for wear is actually something else that's rubbed off onto the coating. It just cleans off.

At Blade, Rob showed me an example of their new Diamond coating. Yep, real Diamond bonded to the steel.

Thanks Jerry. This is interesting stuff. I'm sure you've fiddled with it. Do nails, or soft metals knock any off?

Sam, I'm uncomfortable saying exactly where it might fail. It should tolerate those things, but it likely depends on how the edge is applied.
