    Thanks guys.

    If I am able to combine both - edge stability (sharpness) and wear resistance (edge holding) in one heat treatment, that would be a best of two worlds. Working on it.

    I guess that's one of the cool things about 52100, there so much you can do with it.

    I couldn't agree more.

    Thanks for the update Marko.

    Ha. A one character message is apparently too short. So: "??"

    Preliminary indicators point out to new heat treatment as a success - the knife is harder to finish and to thin on Beston 500, a little harder to sharpen, but edge gets razor sharp after 500, 1000, and 5000 followed by diamond loaded strop. Rope cutting test is next, but I feel pretty good about this HT.

    Geometry has been a rocky ride, but I think I narrowed it down to 2 types with best food release from all I tried. Need to figure out how to get both on video. In the mean time, sent out two knives with both geometries for evaluation in a pro kitchen, so should have some input in a few days.

    These two developments put me back in the game. I will continue make changes as I go, but I feel comfortable about both.

    Sorry Folks for the long wait and lack of communication.

    Saya Making and Rope Cutting Test

    On Tuesday, two forum members are coming over to learn how to make sayas and help with a rope cutting test. For the test I am planning to have two (possibly three) knives, all in carbon steel.

    Will post updates.

    Will there be a live broadcast? I would love to play with this, but I don't even own a nice saya as far as I remember...

    Well, these guys will be working for the lessons. Cutting rope is not as easy as it sounds, and there will be 3 knives in different carbon steels to test.
