Way to go Lon!  Grin I think you got it figured out, I only wish you would have used a torque wrench so you would have that info as well to add to your resume!

Very good!

2 things, if I may?

Not on the knife, that stands by it's self, well done!

The 2 things,

The 2X4 did not cut well as the picnic table and clamps were absorbing the knife and cutters action.

The other, eye-protection, please? 

Good test, fantastic demonstration!

Nice Job Lon! The 180's were great. Usually rough forging left on a blade results in stress raisers unless they are ground smooth considering this aspect the number of bends are impressive.

Like Kevin mentioned safety glasses need to be used. It is surprising how small a piece of steel hurts in your eye. They don't shatter very often, but when they do they can do damage.

It looked like it was very strong. I would love to have the knowledge that could have been added to your experiment through the torque values revealed through a torque wrench.

Lon,

Finally watched the vid! Great job. Hope you get great returns on your investments. I would also like to see the flex test done with a torque wrench.

Wow!!!
Great video and The knife speaks for itself.
Thanks for taking time to share it with us.

This is a question because I don't understand. Why do you want a torque wrench used?

because you can tll exactly how much force was used to do the bending.....and the more you test you have data to compare against

Lon: you don't need a high ticket torque wrench, watch the pawn shops and secondhand stores. My 1/2 inch drive torque wrench cost me around $10.00 years ago, saw one at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for $1.00. Might take time but one will come to you if you keep your eyes open.
