View Full Version : Filet knife flex video

Here is a video showing the flex of this knife. As mentioned in my other thread, the flex is a result of the grind. It is the same HT I use on a regular gyuto or suji made from CPM S35VN.

I thought I would add this so you could clearly see, that even after a drastic bend, it comes back straight and true.

Um, that's just crazy to me. And it scares the Crap out of me. A gentleman at the Ren fest last year was doing the same with one of his swords showing me how much flex it had when it suddenly exploded. Blade shrapnel went flying everywhere. I uselessly dived to the ground and with luck a piece only smacked me on my back. But the bladesmith was not as lucky and had to be rushed off. I felt terrible, and very thirsty for another beer at the same time.
