  1. Yar der flin der flur der yammer yammer. Just practicing my Swedish.
  2. Dear Bill, Thanks for the comments. It was my thought back when I acquired the steel that it would probably benefit from a heat treat regime similar to spheroidizing 52100 due to its alloys. I may have been wrong as I do not even qualify as an amateur metallurgist. I understood that Crucible had asked Kevin Cashen to work on a heat treat that would optimize its properties but I guess nothing ever came of that. Patrick D
  3. Dear Doug, Thank you for the kind thoughts. I suspect that if one was to get the heat treat nailed down this steel would produce some excellent knives. Patrick
  4. Dear Jerrod, Thank you for you insight, I appreciate your response. I may be mistaken but I do not think this steel is produced any longer. At least, I could not find it on Crucible’s website. I will say that it does not move as easily under the hammer as some other steels and its alloy composition probably does not allow you to maximize its performance with a simple heat treatment regime. I do sincerely apologize for the bumping, I was not intentionally trying to violate the forum rules.
  5. Dear Friends, I wish to apologize to all forum members for bumping my sales posts. I did not know that it is not permitted on this forum as it is on other forums. It will not happen again.
