Quiet Carry's pocket carry is understated and exceptionally well built. Quiet Carry's Bryce Alexander methodically designs, uses best in class components and delivers with clean, sleek & under-assuming presentation that surprises with tough performance. As Bryce states: The overall design concept was to create an EDC knife that is discreet and can crossover as something you can carry to the office or even dress up a notch more depending on the finish. Jeans to slacks and dress wear, and rides in the inside coat pocket well.  We are proud to be releasing the The IQ Knife in our own Drop rendition with a tactile easy pluck out of the pocket.

The failure to provide answers to my questions about HRC and the Cryo treatment leads me no alternative but to think about buying that new Cold Steel Kris. Of course, if you told me the the HRC was 58 and the cryo treatment was dry ice, that info would lead me to the same place.

Let's try again, John. I just finished reading a lot of reviews concerning this steel. Most people felt that the optimal HRC was around 61. Here is the a comment by a member of BF.
"I am remembering a discussion I had with someone a couple of years ago about Elmax. Can't remember who, but it was someone who had used the stuff. I do believe that Elmax is pretty darn tough (for stainless steel) and some people leave it a bit soft in order to enhance that toughness. His opinion was that you don't really give up much in the way of toughness by going over 60Rc, but what you gain is abrasion resistance, etc, that is not worse than like 80% of that you get with the crazy allowed stuff like M390, etc. and a steel that is tougher, easier to work with and a bit cheaper. One other thing I picked up for the B-U guy at Blade is the it really needs LN cold treatment for maximum effect. It is one of those alloys that needs to get about 15-20 degrees colder than you can typically get with dry ice.
That is consistent with most of the other things that I read. Several commentors stated that most production knives with Elmax were run at 58-59 and that was really a waste. Are you willing to state the HRC? Are you willing to state whether or not you use a liquid nitrogen cryotreatment? Tnank you.

I am not familiar with this company. There was not a lot of enthusiasm for their products on BladeForums.

If I am going to pay for Elmax, I want to know the HRC. Anyone know that datum for this product?

Quiet Carry doesn't claim to make it's own knives in-house and doesn't disclose who does.

I picked up a couple of these from the original Kickstarter. They are very nice knives if a bit small for my hands. I do think I prefer the smooth finish versus the milling though.

Aesthically, I do not think it adds much to the knife. I just prefer the smooth finish. Spoiled by the milling on the Thresher, Buc, etc. Maybe. The milling variations on those knives are more attractive. I am sure the milling here does improve the grip though.

Forgive me - I was under the impression you somehow obtained this variant previously. I re-read your original comment in the context of your latest and I understand that you were just talking visuals now.

Where are the knives made? China is a no go for me.

Ceramic bearings, Titanium frame and Elmax... for $200? Most certainly made in China.
