handle = wood, paracord, t88 epoxy
cutting edge length = 7 3/4 inch
total length = 13 1/2 inch
blade thickness = 1/4 inch
steel = 5160
hardness = tempered at 425 three times for 2 hours each, maybe around 59rc don't have a tester yet








handle butt still needs finishing sanding done.

Chad, that is some knife.
Not my normal style, but I love the looks of this knife. Nice crisp cleans grinds, nicely proportioned, great use of the handle materials. I didn't watch the whole video, but the performance seems to be there.
I would say, great work, you should be very proud.

Chad: It is great to see you are testing, I applaud you.

Your testing medium, (cutting cardboard) is one that most knife users can relate to and when a test relates to their experience it will be more meaningful to them.

The only problem I see is that it takes you a lot of time to test a knife, time you could be using to do another experiment or make another knife. This is why I seek to use the most aggressive test medium I can obtain easily and that has proven to be Hemp or Sisal Rope.

I have thought very long and hard about getting a reel of hemp  but, because I am a hobbiest maker and love to test  my knives in the way that I will be using them, and my testing will not be done on this knife till the knife is destroyed or the next replacement knife comes around. I am still contiplating getting a reel so that I can test my initial heat treatment on each knife to test my results much closer.

I hear that. I've been reading and learning in here for a while now. Itching to get my feet wet. Been working 80-90 hours a week and can't even think about taking on a project.
