Diogenes in the barrel


Recommended Posts

I usually have completely ground blades without a finish on my workbench for a while.

As a result of this, they are also repeatedly used for cutting work that occasionally occurs at the workbench.

That can say something about their potential ... relatively, of course.

The 2419.05 has undoubtedly "articulated" itself here more often. and often achieved amazing performance.

Reason enough to make a test knife out of it.

Grinded to 0.10 mm, the cutting edge nails the bare thumbnail clearly and is so disgustingly sharp that you can feel it

could ask whether that's too much of a good thing .... no matter what kind of steel, if it's so thin you should look at the area of application and

think about the stress well ... the 2419.05 has enormous edge stability and keeps the fine sharpness in such a way that you get the impression that the steel is thinking for you.

I used a scrap of wood that I found in the jungle a few months ago .... and I have no clue what kind of wood it is .... Extremely hard, fine-pored, mustard-colored and very willing to work with.

As a shape I chose a small flat tang puukko with a fluted barrel handle ... this handle shape combined with this texture has a

impressive feel ..... and the sheath had to have a clip.

Without its advantages and carrying options, I would not put it in and take it with me ... this makes it clear that a good knife

with a functional sheath becomes a better knife .....

These properties are the prerequisite that a knife is used often and often and only then is it meaningful as a test knife.
