    Hello!

    That's a very interesting piece of steel you have there! I have four questions:
    - Thickness? looks like ~3/16 from the pictures...
    - Any idea of the hardness?
    - Through/differential hardened?
    - Is there any holes under the epoxy to attach a handle?

    Thanks! :thumbup:

    oops, sorry I missed your post:eek:.

    -it's around 4mm thick
    -it's differentially hardened, and my guess would be around 58/59 at the edge
    -the handle is epoxied, so I don't know about holes, although since it's diff hardened, the handle may yet be soft enough to drill holes

    It is a forged knife, thought I should mention that.
