A Serrata, of course...blitz through raw chickens if you want a quick soup...
Sideways for garlic crushing, and back of the spine for shellfish, breaking lobster claws etc.

Re: Military...so much handle

I measuredthe internals of my Millie, and a bigger blade is possible.
But would it be worth it?

Re: Rynite Handles for Spyderco?

The Gerber Bolt Action knife use Rynite for the handle. I traded it for another knife...wish I had the GBA now... It was textured and felt warm to the touch. I dropped it one day, and the corner of the spine was dinged a little. I sanded it with 220 grit abrasive in no time at all. The LST was origi...

Re: Serrata

If it were possible here in NZ, I might think about it.
I used to do 15 Kgs when I started the process in 2006, but that foundry has since closed.

I am not a super steel follower, and if something works, why would I try and fix it?
I am not against progress, just old school I guess?

Re: Serrata

No, only 440C because it works.
The process needs 120 kgs of steel each time I cast.
And I am not doing anymore batches, anymore.
Sorry.

Re: Serrata

There is a "thing" that I have been doing on recent knives, called a "Gravity Drop." It "lowers" the edge, so that you can sharpen for years without the ricasso getting in the way. It means that you can cut on a flat surface, and the whole edge touches the cutting board etc. Here is an example... gr...

Re: Records.

NAD and AR gear...and just under 400 records at the moment. Had over 1000, but I sold a bunch over the years, as they were dupes and sometimes trips. :)

A sealed copy of Yellow Brick Road, and a sealed copy of the White Album are my most valuable.

Re: Serrata

I like the design, size, ergonomics, steel... none of that was an issue for me. The main stopper was the 6mm blade stock thickness. I just don't need/want a knife that thick and heavy. Was that thickness necessary for casting 440C? Can you cast 440C in a thinner stock? Capt I will not be doing any ...

Re: Serrata

I, of course, based in the Southern most part of the universe, am unable to get to any Seconds Sale. If I had a Seconds Serrata, I would remove the scales, cut, enlarge and paste the handle by maybe an inch, using judicious welding, and create a Yablanowitz-Serrata. :) Is there anyone near you who c...
