    This photo made me so sad when I saw it it my email. I was a little confused at first because the second photo didn't download. But I could see a small bump on the edge in the first photo.... Then the second photo downloaded on my phone and I realized it was over for my knife.

    It ain't over! I'd seriously consider taking this instead of a working knife. That is crazy cool. What a conversation piece!

    HOLY SMOKES!! thats WILD Bill! I have never seen anything quite like that B4.

    Almost makes me feel a little better about the micro chipping problem with my stainless san mai test blade. Im sure your new blade will work out better..

    Much respect,

    I am not sure what happened on this. Everything was fine after hardening. Then into cryo and when it came out there was a crack on the spine. As it sat on the bench ping tink crack it started to split And I am not sure if it's done yet.

    this knife ended up splitting clear from tip to tang and edge to spine, almost perfectly in the middle.
