Re: Kitchen knife nerds- why basic carbons?

Cryogenic Treatment with liquid nitrogen is standard practice for me, so everything gets LN. The 26c3 in the video was 0.010" bte with a ~15dps convex freehand edge at 65rc on 0.078" stock. Can carbon go more acute? Difficult to say, I think the question is more accurate to ask "can the user handle ...

Re: Kitchen knife nerds- why basic carbons?

What the high carbon simple steels lack in toughness and wear they make up for it in edge stability. https://youtu.be/wsjR6tUXxGo From a Heat treatment point of view these kinds of steels are like a manual transmission vs a automatic, things require more set up to avoid less desirable features and t...

YES, I love Alien, that scene was always so epic lmao Thats true for.... all steels. Thicker BTE, over 20° per side, of course they’re all tougher Indeed, the 15v in the video is at 0.020" bte and a 20dps convex edge so it's not as thick as it could be for pure durability, I wanted to at least see s...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

15v, Not the toughest, not even close, but if used with a thicker grind and convex edge it will be more durable than if thinner at the cost of cutting ability. When you say thicker, what do you mean exactly? Because your "thin" is "oh my god, that's not possible" to the average knife user. I'd say ...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

"edc" size Sal, If possible we gotta have the Paramilitary 2, Para 3 and Military treatment on this steel and I'll always ask for micarta if possible. I feel like we are running out of G10 colors and 15v needs something to show it's special. I'm thinking black canvas for this one. https://i.imgur.co...

What is the block of material you are whittling in the test?
African Black Wood

It was a gift from my friend Luong La "Bluntcut Metal Works"

One of my favorite knife makers.

Eric said he was going to fit it into the Queue for US production. Will still be a while though as we're pretty backed up.

It will be worth the wait, all the factories do excellent work but the Golden facility was always my favorite.

I'm curious what you guys think of how it sharpens and how it holds an edge.

I have the Para3 LW SPY-27 and I'm very happy with it.

Re: New Double Sided CBN Benchstone

It's Mesh, which is close to JIS. I wouldn't get too focused on grit ratings since the surface roughness is usually what folks are trying to determine from the grit size rating. This is a plated stone. The abrasive particles are sticking up more and will making a rougher, deeper cut than a stone wit...

Re: K390 PM2 | Testing

I think there is no shortage of endless debates about freehand vs fixed angle systems and big egos on both sides. I'd just say they do different things and have there advantages and disadvantages. I'd say if folks want to get the most out of geeking on knife edges folks need to explore and master BO...
