Of course I will graciously still accept your offer sir. Oh yeah, did I mention that I have a heat treat oven on the way? :mrgreen:

Really looking to trying one of these out. Don't release them too soon, I want to have something in my wallet for more than a couple days.

How are these coming along Shaun? I told my wife I wasn't going to buy anymore knives for awhile but I didn't say for how long! :mrgreen:

Great looking gyuto! How do you like working with the 52100 steel? It must be a great steel as custom knife makers like Bob Kramer and others use it. Bill B

It's finicky on the heat treat side, but when done right it's hard to beat. These particular blades have been heat treated by Josh Dabney; triple normalization to ensure the finest grain structure before heat treat. I'm getting my own heat treat oven in about 2 weeks and will be using the same recipe. As far as how the steel finishes, I like it a lot, still easier to finish than stainless but still has good wear resistance. This stuff seems to take a nice stiff edge, doesn't roll as easy as other 52100's I've tried. That little extra hardness (62) really makes a difference.

The extra $100 over the old s35vn might have these out of my price range for now. :( Is the steel that much more expensive or is is that much more work, probably both?

It's not that the steel is expensive, it's actually cheaper than s35, it's just more time consuming to make a better grind by myself as opposed to having Lamson bang them out for me. I think the price will be more like 250 from now on instead of 300, I'd rather them move faster.

Playing with some hunting knives as well lately: Here's a one in 1095 I did with a walnut handle. These are actually pretty fun to do. :)
