Thread: Possible Lamson Collaboration Line of Knives

  1. #81
    250 on the edge is under 10" - I'd prefer 260 - 270 on the edge. Any of the steels mentioned are fine - I threw the lamson pic up because it's a Sab like profile and who knows - they might still have that profile on the books.

    Edge ~250 and price about $200, western handle, Sab profile, ~61 hardness, either O1 or 52100 -- whichever they are best at heat treating. Would probably get one for the house and one for a gift. If CPM154 would probably buy one for a gift, but probably not one for me.

    250 is good for me. No KKF affiliation, though. I'm thinking I'll handle the sales and we can come up with a title for it as a group.

    I'm absolutely in. I'll go for multiple knives, keep one and a few for gifts. I'm ready to take a ride to Shelburne Falls. The idea of a joint effort of experienced users is promising. I would also like to thank Dave for being gracious . What next Lefty, discussion of type, size, steel etc?

    250 length. I think it's a tad more versatile. It would be nice to see a thicker spine closer to the choil. It's much comfier over long prep sessions. I have to wonder though- are we trying to come up with something that works well for us as knuts? Or try to apply some of the things we appreciate into a mass production style knife?

    Search my latest posts and you will see I clearly made a post.

    Anyway from what I can salvage/remember...


    A good compromising length is 255mm, it's smack in the middle of 240-270 and I'd be willing to settle on that. O1 or 52100 hardened to 62-63, modified Sab profile, 2.5-3mm at the spine, "s" shaped grind, real thin behind the edge, 52mm height, distal taper, tapered tang, integral bolster, no fingerguard/full bolster, fully rounded spine and choil, stabilized burl handle, 1 mosaic pin.
