Re: The Return of S60V/440V

S60V at 61.5rc https://i.imgur.com/WxdJPMJ.jpg I thought it would be fun to do see what happens to the edge with abusive torquing and twisting cuts with lots of lateral force out of African blackwood (very hard wood) with S60v using a 400grit CBN stoned 1um diamond stropped edge at 14 DPS flat with ...

Any chance you’ll work on a stone or two for 15V?
We'll see what happens.

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

I don't think this is a geometry that should be pushed on a production folder. I just wanted to show what the limits of the material are, also I wanted a flex feature for this specific design. I’ll defer to you, Shawn, of course. But do you see hope for 15V in a thin folder like a longer Chaparral?...

All info and updates certainly are welcome... its definitely getting a lot of us excited about 15V

Does this involve a whole new knife design or are you putting 15V in an existing model?
I sent Sal a CAD file with a folding knife design I created.

Sal made a prototype of the design.

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

I'm eager to see what this collaboration produces. Are there any details that can be shared? I have a prototype that I need to ship back to Sal. Not many details to share until the project gets closer to completion. I've been excited about this steel for a couple years now and have been continuousl...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

Yes, it's is very thin, 0.060" at the base with a taper to the tip. All done by hand and eye. That's opinel territory. :eek: An opinel No.8 is 0.066" at the spine. I measured this 15v knife at 0.045" at the base with a taper to 0.005" at the tipy tip. The stock thickness was 0.105" so it was a lot ...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

DBH, how is the edge stability on your 15v blade? It's not 52100 but it's not S110V either. In my testing on handmade customs it has made me very happy. The stability was higher than the Rex121 I made knives from. https://i.imgur.com/P4JHfzG.jpg That is impressive for a high carbide steel at 65rc. ...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

I have been enjoying CPM 15v

I made a flexible blade hunter/skinner at 65rc.

Should get in tight spots nicely.

Re: belt chatter or heat treating issue? (Shaman factory edge)

Factory edges get zero love, no one respects and appreciates the fact that Spyderco can hit the volume they need to get folks a quality sub $200 knife. I don't think folks understand how long it takes to sharpen a knife with Gucci angles and finish versus the time needed to sharpen at high volume 30...

Re: Where's the 3V?

The 3v name inspires feelings of an "invincible" blade steel that is impossible to chip and break...:D The reality is that it's impact toughness drops to 4v levels at ~62rc as can be seen in your Knife Engineering books on pg 47 So if it's gunna be run at 62 why not use 4v? :D https://i.imgur.com/rr...

I prefer Happy Birthday Dr. Larrin S. Thomas, Ph.D. That way you get the PhD at the beginning and the end. Add the middle initial (S.) and the period in Ph.D for extra class and distinction.
