    The knives would be 52100 with a slightly modified(for ease of production) triple quench triple temper heat treat. Tinking about holding #s 1 and 25 out of each bath and doing a set at the end of the year with matching handles and block

    I think that this is a really good example of how to best use the passaround concept.

    Why waterjet? Pierre wrote this in his mid tech knife thread:

    They will be cut out by lasers, tighter tollerance than water jet. Same end result, knife blanks. They will be heat treated in salts, in my opinion, a more consistant process. They will also be cryo treated.

    Cost? Easier to find a place to get it done? Does it matter? Will be hand-ground to final profile, so will a couple hundredths of a mm here or there when rough cut really make a difference?

    Not sure if you are just curious as to Bill's fellings about laser vs water (if he even has any), or if you are asking him to defend his position. I suspect it is the former, but your post reads like the latter.

    Hi Oivind,

    Waterjet because there is a good one locally that likes knives and is a nice guy that is very easy to work with.
