Re: Shawn - Thanx much

Hey Jason, Good to see you here. Another junky that appreciates fine stones. Hey Shawn, I used your knife to cut my sushi tonight. The belly worked well. I'll send it to you next week. But...........no public pics until we're within 6 months of production. I'll need to know if you would like any ad...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

Elmax got a bad name early on kind of like S30V did. There is quite a bit of drama around the whole ordeal and some of the myths/lies that were circulated then still persist today. It was ZTs go to steel and I think they moved away from it partly due to consumer perception. Now it has been passed o...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

Elmax got a bad reputation early on in its time in the community due to some issues with a sub-par heat treat from another company, so I've heard a few makers say explicitly that they've steered clear of it from a public perception standpoint. This is silly, but given how much of 'super steel' is m...

Re: Shawn - Thanx much

They are some of the nicest folks I ever met. I can have somewhat of a chip on my shoulder from being a freehand sharpener for so long. I had to set all that aside to open my mind to learning something new. Seems to be a theme for all things in general :D Here, Ben was teaching me on my Spyderco Ten...

Re: Shawn - Thanx much

Nothing in the works. I am more of a benchstone guy so I feel that's where my expertise and focus is. I have been playing more with the Edge Pro to expand my knowledge and for strict cut testing procedure for certain projects. Cody and Ben are very nice and gave me a lesson on the system a year ago ...

Re: Shawn - Thanx much

Thanks Sal, I appreciate your advice and where it comes from. As a connoisseur of stones, I'll definitely be purchasing one of your 8x3" CBN plates to play with. Never know when you might need that particular surface roughness to express the edge and steel a certain way and it will be interesting to...

Re: Shawn - Thanx much

It's a fine piece. Hey Shawn, Do you personally prefer CBN to Diamond? sal Yes, but seems to be difficult to pin point since there are dozens of different grades of both diamond and CBN with different geometry; cutting facets and various levels of cutting aggression, friability and grain toughness....

Thanks Sal, I sold you the first 1k grit vitrified CBN stone. All sold shorty after. https://i.imgur.com/ERtOKkH.jpg Phil and Chad got the 600 grit prototypes that had a much harder bonding for fierce cutting speed that rivals the coarsest diamond plates. I felt the coarser, harder bond was nice for...

Re: Super Hard (70 Rc) High Speed Steels – Maxamet, Rex 121, and More Explained

K390 outcutting REX45 despite REX45 being a few points harder seems feasible given the carbide situation. But s125v beating Maxamet despite a 5 point difference is very surprising to me, since Maxamet has a very high carbide volume. It's interesting to see such varying opinions and test results con...

Re: Super Hard (70 Rc) High Speed Steels – Maxamet, Rex 121, and More Explained

Those people were disappointed in the sharpening by the CATRA organization. They are apparently using that disappointment to discredit the tester itself. I don't know why they want to burn the whole thing down. How do really know what info to trust? Do you agree that some of the values in the chart...

Re: The Discovery of Stainless Steel

Interesting. But what about the Ulfberht sword? Famous Viking sword created hundreds of years before modern stainless steel came about. Like maybe some 800 or so years before modern stainless. But it was crucible steel. There's a special about it on the History channel I think? I'll see about findi...
