Heres one I started on today just for fun.

I know, I know.. I have orders to get done, and supplies to purchase and a list as long as my arm.. But ya know, Sometimes ya just gota have fun!!! :spin chair:

This BEASTLY blade is well over 1/4 inch thick and will be double ground and have damascus fittings and a super SICK burl handle..

It will not be Heat Treated.. And will be mainly a knife for zombie hunting and in case of alien invasions. You know when you need a cool looking knife to kick some Zombie A$$!!! :nunchucks:

Look forward to seeing the progress, what is the reason behind not heat treating it, just to make it easier to work or does it do something for the aesthetics?

Is that a camo patina? Or am I losing my mind?

Its a slice of a Campo Meteorite but it does have a camo look in the pic.. But in hand its very reflective and has cool movement as you change the angles of the blade and the light catches it and its just COOL!!!!!! .. And pictures just cant begin to capture whats going on in this stuff when it etched.. I mean its amazing! Like nothing I have ever seen B4

This knife is being made as a art knife so Heat Treat is not necessary.. I also think this stuff as is would not make it through a quench without breaking into pieces..

Here's a quick video. I dont know if it will let you see it unless you are a FB user? Not sure.. This is my first time trying this. Please let me know if you can see the video.

I could not figure out how to embed the clip so if someone knows how to do it and would like to add it to the tread that would be greatly appreciated.

I would say no, But this slice is almost 3/8 thick.. Ill let ya know how it goes.

I selected the area that appeared to be the most solid area on the slice. It doesnt seem brittle at all, and even with the fissures and stuff when you grind it. Its tough as nails and so far no problems with it chipping or falling apart because its brittle.

Im reading up on these and trying to find as much info as possible about Heat Treating etc.. But as it stands. I dont believe that it would benefit the materials to attempt it.

That is bonkers material, be even more bonkers when its ground and polished.:D
