    Mostly i use D-2 or 440-C ,imo 154 cm is a poor replacement for ATS-34 so i pretty much stick to those but i have used several different types , S-30-V is great ,12-C-27 is another exelent steel if i am building straight razors i prefer A-2 or 440-C i can get them RC 61 pretty easily

    I bought a couple more Boker Kalishnakov autos for gifts. These things hold up great, and hold an edge pretty well. I have used and abused these knives, and they keep on giving. I have two in my vehicle, scratched up, clip bent, sharp enough to shave with it, and it always pops open when I push the button. My favorite knife I own.

    Hard to beat IMO for $40. Here is a link for $40 and free shipping.

    I have one a little over a year old and it's holding up well. When I bought mine I paid right at $30 with shipping included. They got popular! I'd still buy another for $40.

    My luck with the Boker Kalishnikov has not been as good. Bought 2 and both died within a few months. Some sort of spring failure as both stopped opening. I think I’ll save for a nicer knife.

    I carry an auto knife daily. The only OTF I've liked is the ProTech Dark Angel.
    I have a Microtech but it doesn't operate well enough for me to depend on it.
