I have seen people on some of the EDC and knife forums mention a free knife comparison app. I had watched a youtube video showing the app, but I didn’t realize it was available as an Android app as well. As suggested in the video, I did a search for “knife steel comparison” and this app came right up. Now I have it installed on both my Android phone and tablet, both of which are running Ice Cream Sandwich. I have no idea if it works on Gingerbread.
The company which created this app is zviSoft. Their web site is http://www.zvisoft.com and their apps can be downloaded straight from the web site.They also have a blog on the site, but it appears mainly to just be release notes for the various service releases of their app. There doesn’t appear to be a Windows version.
The app is easy to use. Just find the steel you want, and it will tell you everything you want to know. It’s a great little app!
Searching for “S30V” gave me an info screen:
Then I clicked the settings button and chose the graph:
