TNT Triple6

Recommended Posts

Design, size, material on this locking liner are rather familiar, except the blade steel called TNT Triple6.

It is one of the creations of my friend and highly respected colleague Achim Wirtz (wootz@web.de), who creates steels and alloys like music.

The most important ingredients of this cold work tool steel are about 1% C and Tungsten, Niob and Titanium 0,6% of each.

This results in one of the most sophisticated steels for knife blades...the flipside of the coin is its workability that I can literally describe as vicious...I never had a steel that screwed up my concept so often....and after successfull completion I promised myself never to work with it again.

Just after testing the blade, I knew I only have to wait until the troubles begin to fade and than maybe, (probably) I am on it again.....:ph34r:

Cheers
