    New Steels in the House

    Just got some new steels and PM stainless should be arriving next week.

    52100
    Mystery Carbon (2 bars, but can order more from Devin if there is interest)
    John Thomas 52100 Damascus (ladder and bubble-wrap, with chevron in 2-3 weeks)
    PM stainless should be arriving next week

    Might be adding one or two more steels shortly.

    All are in .14 ~(3.4mm thickness) or so.

    Exciting! Can't wait to see what you create with those steals.

    Does that mean you will be accepting some custom orders now?

    Sounds great Marko.

    Are these steels mono or clad? I've been meaning to ask specifically about DT's Mystery Carbon.

    These are all going to be monosteel knives. I will use san mai construction down the road with damascus cladding, but the core steel and damascus cladding will be the same steel like AEB-L or 52100, so when heat treated, the core and cladding will be of the same hardness ~ 62RC.

    Mystery carbon will need to be pork fat treated to force the patina, as the steel the very reactive, but once forced, the patina will be spectacular. This steel should have better wear resistance than 52100.

    Hmmmm, now I have to choose between mystery carbon and 52100?

    I have no idea how far down the list I am, so I guess I will just have to sit and wait patiently until I hear from you Marko.

    Yeah I was all set on 52100 but now mystery carbon comes in all, "hey look at me!"

    You're tearing me apart Marko!

    Devin said the mystery carbon has a bit more wear resistance than 52100. I will heat treat it similarly to 52100 aiming for most wear resistance.
