Damn nice blade John! Colin is killing it.
He needs to watch his fingers on that blade. It bit me pretty good already lol. Scary sharp.
Time splitter for @Quiet
Zfinit. A little more hand sanding to go. Gonna bang out handles today.
0.110 which is 3/32
Should make some sweet kitchen knives and thin Apex blades*. Hardness is my choice. Most likely 63HRC.
*Apex blades in this steel start at $200. Great deal!
Don't believe him Forrest @Quiet ...he was cursing you out left and right when I was there...said you'll be lucky to see it by Christmas!
For the record, I believe this completely!
Placing an order this week.
Any suggestions on steel?
I can order 1 more plate.
How expensive is cruwear? Or is z-wear close enough to the same thing or better? Just throwing out ideas..
What about AEB-L? Just more ideas.
Those are essentially the same alloy.
Z-wesr seems SLIGHTLY. tougher.
AEBL is a great choice Especially in thin stock for slicers. Gives people a cheaper option against the more exotic steels you're using. Z-finit sounds very cool though !!
I actually just got some NITRO-V in stock. Very similar to AEB-L. A SMIDGE of vanadium, and a whisper of Nitrogen, added for extra fun.
I still have yet to use it. But I can try it out one of these days!
Alright so. On todays menu we have.
One mini kephart is already spoken for from the 0.156.
I can make another small blade from that steel. (7inches or less OAL)
For the thick Elmax.
At least one Camp 1 model
A possible fighter based off the camp 1. Sharpened swedge, maybe a slight recurve.
If there is enough steel left, a little chunky blade.
Camp 1 model starts at $465
-includes G10/micarta standard
Comment here to claim or DM me.
Todays shop progress.
Decided to work on some Elmax blades. Both large knives are available. Small dashi style knife is available too.
That fighter looks wicked!
That elmax looks like a beast too. Should chop well.
Spectacular failure yesterday.
Vanax blade broke in my hand.
Emailed Chuck AKS and he cant come up with a reason either.
Major bummer because the blade was nearly done. I was working on handles.
