Yes, if there was a difference there is not a person in the world that could tell the difference.  The difference would be so small you would need a very expensive scale to even measure the difference

Chad: something I have always wondered about is the possibility of the weight of ultra fine grain steel when compared to the same volume of steel that does not have fine grain. I know that any difference would be very slight, but it is a question that sticks in the back of my head.

Once a long time ago I tried to compare the two but gave up because my instruments for this kind of experiment were and still are lacking.

interesting. are you trying to say that the finer the grain the more it will weigh? In theory it will weigh more by how much has no significants in the real world unless you are trying to create another way of measuring grain size.

Not sure if this is what you were getting at just my mind going off and thinking again lol

I would have asked him what steel should be used and if he gives an intelligent answer, then ask him  what is said steels atomic mass compared to 52100s atomic mass.

when iron makes up about 97 % +- 2% of most steels. You are really only talking about the weight of iron at this point

I would also ask him what is the material that is added to 52100 that makes it so much heavier then said steel.

Lol sorry I am not laughing at you but the fact that you said your buddy knows a little bit. If anything 52100 will be lighter then 5160 because it has more carbon. But you would need a scale that goes down to the 100th of a gram to tell the difference.

good thing it didn't break all the way and cut your finger!

I noticed the other day that my wedding ring is no longer round. took it off to check a new jewelers ring guage that I made on my new lathe, and noticed that it is an oval instead of a circle. not sure what I did to do that. its a comfort band, so is pretty thick with an oval cross section. maybe I did something like you did, and just didn't notice.

kind of makes you think about the abuse our hands take that we don't even notice as abuse, and that they can take that, and keep working.

what kind of metal is it?

I know that  particle is the dirtiest of the building woods. It has a lot of trash in it and it is not filtered. So any kind of hardened piece of steel could easily get into the wood.

Hey ed how thick of mild steel do I use for the tip test?

It looks really nice.

I am a little confused on what steel you are using, you said it has 1.5 % carbon but it is like 1075?

1075 steel has .75 % carbon in it huge difference. Does it have 1.5 % carbon and the strength of 1075?

can it be hemp or sisal? or only hemp?
11  KNIFE GALLERY / Show & Tell / Re: 5160 camp knife by chad on: December 17, 2013, 06:54:29 PM
does anyone have a good source of sisal rope 5/8" or bigger?

so while testing this knife sparks flew while chopping particle board.

this is the video with the spark caught on tape

So has it been discussed how exactly the points work with testing, or if there will be a point system? As some one who is looking to put one of my knives up to the ultimate test, I would just like to know what I am going up against.

If there is a point system is there points gained for the amount of degrees the blade springs back to straight. This is something I am working towards a blade that flexs with out taking a set or breaking. I think there should be something said about a blade that can go 90 and go back straight. Now I dont shoot for anything more then 45 because In all my uses on my knives this includes prying, batoning, chopping, climbing with, and standing on the most bend I have seen in one of my blades was a little less then 45 and this was spliting wood through a knot
14  KNIFE TALK / General Discussion / Re: 52100 is it a perfect steel for every cutting tool? on: December 13, 2013, 08:53:46 PM
I think he is saying that 52100 out of all the steels out there is probably the best overall performer, keeping all aspects in mind ease of sharpening, strength, edge retention, and impact toughness, price, and if careful corrosion resistance.

I agree 52100 is good at everything but not the best at anything.
