No need to wait from what I can tell the Recent DLT release has got ya covered and the flippers are not getting price for them due to public ignorance of the steel used in it. Close on paper but nicer in real use.
That's enthusiastic, might be possible, but I haven't been chasing the DLT releases.
I'll wait for Sal's verification (if any) and product at the dealer when I'm shopping.
And I'll leave you with this tidbit on Rockwell testing.
"Specimen support is also very critical in Rockwell testing because of the fact that the method involves depth measurement. Any specimen movement is transferred to the indenter and the measurement system, leading to an error being introduced into the test. With the precise nature of the test (bearing in mind that one Rockwell point on the regular scale equals 0.002 mm or 0.00008 of an inch) a movement of only 0.001 of an inch could cause an error of over 10 Rockwell points.
The supporting anvil should be selected to match the specimen geometry and to provide full and uncompromised support and it is essential that the anvil is rigid enough to prevent any deformation during use."
Ever hear of a knife tested at say 50 HRC ?
