TwoSun TS09 D2

Post by old4570 » Thu Apr 08, 2021 2:45 am






::sotb:: Oh dear !

Another disappointing knife ! This time from TwoSun .. So looks like TwoSun is not immune from pushing out rubbish !
Remembering this is SUPPOSEDLY D2 tool steel .

A) The steel is not particularly hard
B) Edge holding is not where decent D2 should be
C) The TS09 was given 3 chances to impress

Whetstone grinder edge - 150
180 grit guided diamond cut edge 22 deg- 200
800 grit guided edge 22 deg - 150

A poor showing for D2 Tool Steel ! ( Would be a fairly good showing for CrMov - but not for D2 )

Before cutting rope :
The knife is a brute , the blade steel is massive .
Seems like a over built knife . Everything is straight and tight .
The handle hurts .....
That's right , grip this knife and it hurts .. The better the grip the better the pain . ::facepalm::
I would rate the TS09 an excellent torture device .
Grip panels need to be de horned / bevelled / softened . Edges / corners are just irritatingly sharp and pointy .
If my sample is the norm , I would recommend a hard pass on this one .

Very good information.
Thank you for doing these tests. It will save some of us from buying this knife and then being disappointed. How it feels in hand and how well it edge holds cannot be known from looking at retailer's pictures.

A lot of people are pushing TwoSun at the moment ( YouTube ) ..
My first was decent , this is my 2nd and it's overly Average ( Especially For D2 - Supposedly )
And my 3rd one is a TS123 .. Looks great / Feels great / Performs ???? ( Supposedly M390 ) Be the next TwoSun put to the rope .
