    Hopefully, Bill shows us the failures, too. That would be just as interesting...

    That would have been a good Idea if I someone had thought of it before I turned them into something else.

    Bill: your knife will enter a test at Marko
    Hopefully it will work out today! Damn I look forward to this one!

    @ Oivind
    Actually, no. I will only test Shigefusa at this time. By the time I get to other knives, yours will be in Norway.

    Sorry Oivind I didn't get to try today. Had to do some mechanicing and then had some friends show up from out of town and a nes JS hopeful turned up to do his performance test. So no time to set everthing up and do the weld. It is going to take most of a day and I don't want anyone around to distract me and possibly cause another failure.

    When are you testing Marko? I have a knife that you could test if you wanted.

    Bill,
    I have been reading up on Wayne Goddard and Phil Wilson cutting rope test. I believe (from what I have read) you do a similar testing for your knives.

    I would like to test several steels in about same hardness range and similarly sharpened to 3-5K. I also would like to test how stropping (touching up between sharpening) improves cutting ability and how end-grain cutting surface compares to edge grain in terms of edge retention of a knife.

    None of these tests will be laboratory precise, but I should get a good idea about wear resistance of several steels.

    I might pick your brain a little bit, as I don't think this is as easy as it reads.
