    On those I'm going to do one offs until I get it dialed in.

    That is pretty exciting Dave...Are you going to be making the wa handles, or is Stefan? Really like these.

    Stefan will make some on different levels and I may even try one or two myself one day and I also hope to have other options available too. Lots of fun stuff coming.

    Just curious, what steel thickness are you starting with, and what RC hardensss are you shooting for with the O-1? In your experience is O-1 one of the better steels compared to say 52100 or W-2?

    Thanks and God Bless

    They're 3/32" stock & they're hardened to Rc60-61 with cryo. I can't say that I have a preference for one steel over another but I look towards edge retention & sharpen-ability as the two main bits of criteria that need to be well taken care of. I'd like grind-ability to be part of the equation as well but hardened O-1 doesn't meet that by any sense of the description, it's some tough ass stuff for sure.
