Skinny W2 - I knew it!
You should do some WIP pics. I would keep a keen eye out for warpage...that's mighty thin steel you got there.
you can blame me for the over sized 52100 i told aldo to get it that way. you can always grind down but you cant add back a easy
and i have the really skinny W2 3/32 thick but i dont know if he has any left
Marko, If you are going to try a hamon on 52100 you can save yourself some time and effort by not bothering, it dont work. You can get a temper line by heating and quenching only half the blade but it is not the wispy cloudy transition of a Japanese hamon.
