Hey everyone,

This year I spent a good amount of time working on an experimental knife for the bladesmithing competition at TMS 2015. The requirements were that it needed to be forged and also needed a video, characterization report, and poster. I attempted to do a chopper of 52100 with a martensite edge and a martensite/bainite duplex spine.

Unfortunately I didn't place in the competition, but I learned a lot and will improve a ton from it. It also made a big impression, which is what I wanted at the very least. I want to thank Aldo for 52100, Chuck Bybee for the C-Tek, Travis Wuertz for forge access and materials, and Sonia at Tempil for a series of Tempilstiks.

Finished Knife:

Video (Disclaimer: I don't claim to know anything about anything. I'm probably doing many things incorrectly):



I'll have more details up soon, and another photo.

Thanks!
