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.

If only one knife is possible, it would have to be the Pm2

I'd like to see the Manix 2 LW fill more of the role of the mule team.

However, I feel that for 15v, the knife is already going to be expensive to produce much like Maxamet so I'd rather have the features the pm2 offers over the Manix 2 LW.

15v in a PM2 would be the the full package.

I hope you were able to make your design in black micarta! Any hints on materials, blade length, lock type?

There is no knife I am more exited for. Something to look forward to in 2021.

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.

That is a good problem to have! Keep on keepin’ on!

I'm still super eager to see BBB's design! Cool news on Golden production. :spyder: :cool: :D

Little recap on the CPM 15v testing


https://youtu.be/ooUNG2OymQk



"It's structural perfection is matched only by it's hostility"

"I admire it's purity, a pure vanadium cutting machine, not clouded by delusions of toughness, a slicer"

😂

Carbon 3.5%
Chromium 5.25%
Molybdenum 1.26%
Vanadium 14.86%

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.

15v is special, because I've done a lot of testing and research to build the protocol to increase it's stability for pushing thin geometry, the durability in the video is mostly due to thicker geometry.

However, the standard spec sheet protocol was more prone to chipping/breaking even at lower HRC

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 0.030"bte on a 25dps is on the hefty side, most survival type blades are in that range, my point is that it's the geometry doing most of the heavy lifting on durability.

Thats true for.... all steels. Thicker BTE, over 20° per side, of course they’re all tougher

I’m. It a fan of the pm2, but... 15v and micarta... mmmm. That MIGHT tip the scales.

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 some of the steel and HT can do.

The spec sheet protocol was softer and also more brittle.

So I am happy with the results.

This scene gave me nightmares when I was a kid, along with that infamous chest burster scene .Really freaky how a talking dismembered human-analogue head with milky android fluid can be to a young boy. RIP sir Ian Holm. :spyder: That's one crazy testing video! :D

I liked Aliens better. So many quotable lines. Alien is still both classic and epic nonetheless. It’s too bad they’ve never been able to do anything else with the franchise, except maybe Covenant.

On topic: where’s our 15v at?
