  1. Good info. Thank you Alan. Inclusions yes. There are 3-4 of them on each side. Very noticable when its sanded to 220. They are dark deep pits. I suppose I could surface grind them. I will definitely look into ordering surface ground material if I get lucky on this run. I'm hoping to provide a very nice quality knife in order to recoup the funds used to produce the first run. It's a long shot I know. Thank you for the info and your time.
  2. Thanks Alan. I've drilled the holes and produced the bevel. I'm noticing minor pitting on the flats that I'm removing with 80/180/220 on the DA but there are larger pits that could require .020 to .030 of material to be removed. Is this common or is this something that I can reject the material for. I wouldn't accept a blade with pitting in the material. Thank you
  3. I chose N695 Bohler. @J.Leon_SzesnyI won't be chopping thru any bones. Yet. Mmmm austentize. I love it when you talk dirty to me doug lol
  4. My plan is to send the parts I'm making out to be heat treated by the same professionals that have heat treated the tools and dies that I design and fabricate for metal shaping, punching and forming. My question is this: Is the standard blade heat treating focused specifically on the edge and bevel? Is this a natural assumption when heat treat is applied to a blade or would I assume that the entire part would be treated? AFTER THOUGHT; This will be a full tang cleaver measuring 11 inches long by 6 tall and .190" thick to start. Would it be wise not to heat treat the entir
  5. Thank you for your input gentlemen
  6. Bevel jigs used in conjunction with belt sanders 1. Is this a common approach to large surface area bevels? 2. Has anyone here used a milling machine and a fly cutter?
