I can't wait to try ELMAX. I've never had a blade made of that.

Is Sal implying there is a Carpenter steel version of the Bushcraft in the works (posted on Bladeforums)?

01 was the preferred steel for Bushcrafters. Since this model was designed by
Bushcrafters for Bushcrafters, we felt we should follow the proper path. Because the handle was so etraordinarily comfortable to use for long periods of time, I felt the handle could be also used for other outdoor solutions. My preference would have been S90V as an optimal compromise. Also, now we have Carpenter's version. Those two steels in a FFG will offer exceptional cutting power, edge retention and still provide corrosion resistance. More difficult to sharpen in the field.


...or does he mean Carpenters version of S90v (20CP)?

Sadly, I suspect the latter (but I was never much good at interpreting the message of the prophets!)

Actually, the name "Bodacious" is being saved for a large Rescue model designed for the Rodeo market. "Bodacious" was the name of a very famous bull that was impossible to ride. He has a special weave for his harness. We had a replica made of the original weave of the harness tha we plan to use as the scale texture.

I felt that for larger cutting chores like cutting up boxes, I wanted a little more purchase for control. This meant a tad wider and thicker. I also wanted a full flat grind. For the types of things that I cut, it works better. A full flat would require a thicker stock lest it become too weak, hence the thicker blade.

Now I almost always have a Manbug with me. It has replaced the Ladybug. I'm ready for a ZDP Manbug.

sal
Me too :D

I have a FRN Manbug and it is really nice.

Very Cool.

A little information from the website below.
Bohler K390 has close to the same edge holding as A11 but is much tougher. Bohler's third generation particle metallurgy contributes to the toughness of the steel

This steel will be hard to grind, finish and sharpen. Once it is sharp it will stay sharp for a long long long time. :D

In the table above A11, M4 & Vanadis 4 Extra are shown for comparison purposes.

In a C37 Walker thread (someone also asks for a C22 sprint run, so I'm not sure exactly which of them Sal is referring to):

Lum Tanto (FB03) Sprint?

sal wrote:Hi Chris,

We just heard from the maker and the micarta deal fell through. We're looking at paperstone or maybe G-10. I guess it's a first comment on the Lum Tanto sprint.

Hmm... Leather or Boltaron sheath?

If they're screw construction, then "Presto! Chango!" pull them off and build your own Micarta scales. Trust me, it's fun! :D
