    Could one of these be heat treated to a higher level? What is the steel, anyway?

    I believe I read once that it is X50CrMoV, HRC ~55

    Nice job. Those knives are ugly in their original form, but they are not completely horrible. Hell of a lot better than what is in many people's knife rack.

    Thanks again guys!
    Johndoughy I tried to thin mostly from like 2cm downwards, but i took some from upper part especially around the tip, which is quite thin now, but I thought some extra weight qould help, its too blade-light anyways
    TK, its for sale now, with the AMAZING DRAMATIC offer of knife plus three-legged-sauce-stirrer for only 399.99. You get bonus of half price off on your next purchase.
    Terms and conditions apply.

    I quite like the steel, its taking hell of an edge, but hold it for like next to notime. Would be fun to harden it, if I had any clue of how.
