  1. Hi guys! I've finished this knife quite a while back but never got around to edit the videos I took and post the photos here. I chose to go with 440C for a more maintenance friendly knife since I was going to be using it a lot. After using it for over a year, I'm very surprised and satisfied with the steel's performance. Good edge retention, easy to sharpen, does not scracth as easily as 5160, for example and didn't get a patina so far. Here is a video with most of the process I went though: https://youtu.be/ELHezsRhMa8 Let me know what you guys think and how I can imp
  2. Hello. I'm finishing up my second kitchen knife. It's made out of AEB-L and I wanted to apply a satin to it, so I sanded one part down to 1000 grit, then covered it with a masking tape, flipped it over and did the other side. When I took the tape off, I discovered white spots on the blade that you can see in the picture. I tried to sand them off (but I didn't go lower than 400 grit) and wash them off with acetone, but to no avail. What can they be, any ideas? The only thing I can think of is they are gouges left by some large steel crumbs, but why are they pits and not scratches and how
  3. Hi! I am very new to forging and metal works. As a DIY project I am planning to built a stainless steel cabinet for my home. I am planning to use 18 Gauge 304 Grade SS. Dimension (Width X Depth X Height) of my cabinet would be 30 inches X 24 inches X 34 inches. The cabinet top including appliances I am planning to keep on the top will weight around 20 -50 Kg. Now I am not sure whether I need a tubular framework (may be 1/2 inch) or not. I would love a more generalization, that is - when one should consider a tubular framework instead of direct use of the sheet metal. So
  4. I'm taking a Metal Working class at the local University. The shop is amazing, but there is little guidance in the class; they have a schedule but the professor clarified at the first class that the eight weeks really focus on what the students want to do (if everyone wants to blacksmith, they focus on that, if everyone wants to cast bronze, they do that). There are two bronze castings I already plan on doing, but the one project I'm iffy on with my time there is trying to at least make a damascus billet, if not a new kitchen knife if time allows. I have a 4 ft piece of 2"x1/8" 52100 steel I g
  5. I'm finding that the 2" round 316 bar always fracktures and splinters after drawing down under the hammer. I'm keeping it nice and hot but as I work it down into a point I can feel all the delaminations catching my hand as I feel along the taper. Any advice would be awesome, thanks Col.
