Stainless rigging wire by KOS

Has anyone ever heard of, or purchased, stainless steel rigging wire from a Korean company called KOS?

Yes. It is top quality wire sold in Australia by Arcus wire and in England by Stalok.

Not sure I would say "top quality" more like as good as it gets these days.

"as good as it gets" pretty much means "top quality" however you look at it

Kos Wire is really good Stainless Steel Wire Rope. There are other types which might be 316 but the Kos Wire is cleaner and shinier, and hence has better corrosion resistance than some of the other 316 wires. You can get it in Brisbane at www.anzor.com.au or they will courier it round Aus.

I bought some from riggingonly.com, they pull test each spool and say it is always above specs, my 316 tests nearly as strong as standard specs for 304

They say it is what is generally sold by other companies such as Loos in the US. I asked for US domestic wire, they said it more or less does not exist anymore and this is the best stuff going.
