Yes, I know there is a sub for knives but I see cool shit posted here in GD by people who aren't in the sub then forget what the title of the thread was and then get bored trying to search through every random knife related thread in GD.

This is what I usually carry for long bike rides:

I was wondering the same about all the leatherwork.

I thought the "bear jaw bone" handle looked interesting and painful to actually use.

I've heard that it's common for new distilleries to open with vodka because it's faster than beverages that require aging. Maybe there's a new kid on the block?

The thin ones were warping in my dry ice bath. (I grind pretty much all of my knives hard(unless they're really thick, which I almost never make any)They'd be flat out of the plates and come out of the dry ice shaped like a banana. Lol

I've dealt with the grinding to straighten it out stuff. It can be frustrating sometimes.

I grind all of my kitchen knives to ~.008" on the edge. On my favorite chef's knife, I took it to.004". It could almost cut paper before I sharpened it. I like aeb-l and 80CrV2 because of the toughness. They can hold up to being thin enough that even if they aren't technically sharp anymore, they'll still cut food ok.   I would like to try something that has good toughness but better edge retention than either of them. I think 3v might be a bit of improvement in edge retention while still holding up to being thin.

Are they room temp before the bath? You could try clamping it to a 3/8 bar while it’s in the bath. I’ll be talking to Paul Farner tomorrow. I’ll pick his brain, that’s pretty bizarre.

Try Nitro-v, it’s not much more than aeb-l. 3v, or 4v is also an outstanding choice. Or just jump up to Elmax, or Magnacut.

When I ht aeb-l, I leave it in the foil, clamp it between the aluminum plates and blow air between the plates until it's cool enough to handle, then pull it out, take it out of the pouch and put it in a bath of dry ice and denatured alcohol until the dry ice is gone (overnight).  I never tried clamping them to something in the bath. I plan on switching to liquid nitrogen when I get to setup shop again.   Warping is something that I end up dealing with about half of the aeb-l blades I make.  I have read somewhere (knifesteelnerds maybe?) that at one point in the process all aeb-l is in a coil and that shape can come back during HT.

Maybe cryo after first temper? Not sure. Pretty interesting though,  and now I have to find an answer. Haha.

I never tried tempering before the cold treatment because I thought that it would stabilize the retained austenite and the dry ice might not be cold enough to convert it.  I think of the cryo/sub zero treatment as a continuation of the quench.

I can usually get my blades pretty straight by counter bending the blades in the second+ temper cycles, but the fillet knives just wouldn't straighten out.

Martensitic stainless is cryo’d directly after quench. Tool steels, and air hardening steels after the first temper. I don’t believe that’s a hard rule though.

Do you still have the warped blades? Jeff Mutz has had some luck spot heating to straighten. I’ve never tried it personally.

Added 2 new balisongs to the collection. These were actually hand made, in the Phillipines, by a Phillipino guy(s). Blades are made of ground down leaf springs. On the left the inlays are bone, but I don't know what from. It is actually highly flippable although I'm not sure exactly how much I want to do that.  On the right the inlays are narra wood and bone. This one is quite stiff so it does not flip at all. I got them because "I have a bunch of flippers, might as well get a genuine artifact for posterity.

It is a great, versatile steel that can have varied traits by changing the heat treat.

But it is not the end all and be all.

No.

That would be Delta 3V



Oh? You don't have Delta 3V Op?
