Welcome to the forum, Thin Blue Line. Man those are beautiful images and very accurate. I love microscopy images and especially those related to steel and knives.

sal, I would love to see if we can get images of some of the knives you've designed and made under a scanning tunneling microscope, the point and blade and grind images.

I am very excited about the prospects of some form of "Graphene-based Damascus Stainless Steel" for Spyderco knives in the future, when graphene assembler systems become economically and experimentally usable.
