    Hello everybody!
    Recently I started working with 8670 steel and I gotta say, I'm impressed!

    Steel: 8670
    Handle: Hemp wrapped and soaked with glue.

    Overall lenght: 20.5 cm - 8.07''
    Blade lenght: 9 cm - 3.54''
    Blade widght: 3 cm - 1.18''
    Blade thickness: 2.5 mm - 0.98''
    Handle lenght: 11.5 cm - 4.52''

    It has a full flat grind with an antique finish. This one will make a great workshorse without worrying about the finish of the blade.

    The first video shows an edge test on some steel rod. (I will add pictures to show the edge damage). The edge was 10 thousands behind the edge. There was some minor rolling but nothing that could not be fixed in a couple of minutes.
    The second video is from my second test knife. I took the edge even thinner, ~4 thousands and tried the same test. The edges chipped this time. Therefore I did a bend test. This blade was not differentially heat treated but still was able to bend quite a bit. (I will add pictures of the grain).
    Finally, I took the broken blade, reprofiled it a bit and retried the steel rod test. Again, at 10thousands behind the edge it was able to withstand the test.

    It comes with a simple black leather sheath and a belt loop. The sheath is not ready yet, you can choose for either left or right side carry.
