There is Steven Fowler, who told me he's not related to Ed.

He makes kitchen knives about as well as anyone. Uses 52100.

Why would you want to switch steel?

How can I see and hear more about these knives?
My kitchen knives are my most used knives.

His name is Michael Rader, he has a website www.raderblade.com. He is becoming well known for quality kitchen knives.

He buys 52100 steel from us in 2 inch round bars and works it down.

If worked right, quality 5160 steel will also make a good kitchen knife.

Hi all. I just did a search for 52100 kitchen knives and found this thread so thought i would post. I hope I am welcome.

I started making kitchen cutlery in 2002 they were 52100. I am still making 52100 kitchen knives. 5160 if worked at the same low temps and multiple quenched makes a blade nearly as good as 52100. here are a couple of my knives.

52100 core with sheep horn handle.



this knife is used daily by a professional chef. he sharpens two or three times a year.

straight 52100



this knife is 12 inches long. those are shadows on the bottom not the temper line.
hope ya like them.

thanks Phil, I read that one good info there but didn't you do one at bladeforums that showed how to make a double exposure from two pictures of the same knife ie... a shot of the whole knife and a close up of the blade or handle etc.?

Yes Bill, I did, way back when.
I don't have that tutorial saved on my HD.
I suppose I could do a new tutorial on how I do that, the only thing I would need to do it is the time.

Maybe this weekend, if I don't have too many "Honey-Do's".
Right now the only thing I have scheduled for this weekend is pick up my new iMac and paint the whole apartment. Maybe while the paint is drying between coats.  ;^)

Well that would be better than just watching the paint dry. Grin
