Re: Fist in the Eye

Hi Supracor, We opted for a stainless to bring the design into a broader realm. It was our first Puuko and out first collaboration with the maker. We also made the knife quite a while ago before we were using as many steels as we are now. Hard to please everyone. sal Thanks for the clarification :)...

Re: Fist in the Eye

Most of my experience with S30V has been from spyderco. It's my least favorite steel from them. I don't have a charpy or impact tester. All i have is what I've personally seen. S30V isn't that good relatively speaking. I thought spyderco did the mule team project exactly because lab results and the...

Re: Fist in the Eye

I ask because i can't understand why at Golden they have decided so :confused: Spyderco has used 52100, O1 and BD1; these are all better choices for a zero ground knife used mainly for woodcarving. 5160, 1095, Aeb-L, A8, W1, 12c27, A2, and similia are the best choice, but there are also more wear re...

Fist in the Eye

I have always had a relationship of love and hate with Spyderco products; leaving the different models that don't attract me at all there are an enormous number of designs that are wonderful, ergonomic, innovative and very functional. However (and here i explain the relationship of love and hate) th...

Re: Nitrogen-Alloyed Knife Steels

I’m not familiar with those. Can you provide a link? http://www.sanyo-steel.co.jp/english/product/special_steel/images/pdf/metallic_powder2017.pdf I've tried to search some other information on the SPC X series, but Sanyo, like all the japanese steel manufacturers doesn't say so much about their "s...

Re: Nitrogen-Alloyed Knife Steels

Sanyo has a series of Nitrogen-alloyed superhigh speed steels and Hitachi has some Nitride-based sintered ultrahard materials.
Of course also Bohler-Uddeholm N-steels are intriguing.
It would be interesting to try them :)

Re: Why we love the steels we love?

I cannot say that a steel is better than another.
I love them because they are so much!

Re: Cheap Knives question.

it is not the price that counts, but the relationship between this and the quality. For about 3 dollars this knife beats practically every knife over 100 dollars on the market, because as it may be a practical sh!t he will never be able to cut 33.3 times less , and the more the price increases the m...

The Rock Salt has an excellent geometry but it is a bit small and not as heavy as a chopper.

The blade length should be at least 10 '', with a thickness of ~ 0.3 ''.

Re: What's your opinion on customizing your knives?

I regrind by myself all my knives up to a zero ffg.
The only ones I obviously do not dare touch are my Higo and Hizen.
I also apply a high grit on all the blades that i use, except on high V steels and on my rockys.
Sometimes i (re)build their handles with Ipé wood.

Re: Cost Cutting on High End Models, Why?

I don't consider anything under $500 high end. Sometimes also +$500 things are not high end but only a bunch of crap. G.Sakai is selling the Ultimate Hunter, a not so big fixed blade made in collaboration with Kitano Katsumi. It consists of 67 hrc Zdp189 Katakiriba asymmetrical edge blade, with mir...
