    just bought this knife, arrived the other day. picked it up at the courier:

















    bought it at bladeforums off of an independent knife maker with the nick of gimmejr

    he said it was AEB-L hardened to around 57-58RC, octagonal natural micarta handles with brass rivets. a bit on the thick side and softer hardness, but it's fine for what i need it for. =D

    it arrived with micro chips on the edge, probably sharpened with a belt type thing. fixed that up quickly.

    you guys are right about AEB-L, it's very fine grained and sharpens up real well. sharpens up very much like carbon. it cut me already. lol. i'll play around with it soon. i'll probably take round off the shoulders to help with the cutting.

    the handle's a bit on the small side but it's nice and comfy, decent grippyness for the size.

    sorry for lots of pix.

    it was cheap so i really couldn't argue. lol.

    he's getting his new stuff heat treated at a better place coz he says it might be due to bad heat treat from his previous guy.

    I blame Adam Marr for my love affair with AEB-L.

    Here's my newest buy: forged from one piece of solid tool steel, and made in Rockford, Illinois. Beautiful!

    That hammer looks like it has a strong right-hand bias though.....
