I know about W1, W2 and W3 but all are corrosive prone. Are there any stainless steels that are water hardenable? I appreciate any help
Hi, just finished this one up this morning. Blade is 10.5 inches of clayed and water hardened W2. Fittings areW's damascus and copper. Handle is bookmatched ironwood burl (one of the nicest I've seen). Thanks for looking, feedback is appreciated. -Justin
