1. CPM154 (powdered stainless) @ Rc 61-62 (with cryo) with teal colored Big Leaf Maple Burl handle and mosaic pins.
2. O1 (high carbon tool steel) @ Rc 60-61 (with cryo) with Cocobolo handle and copper pins.
These blades were reclaimed from my "Pile O' Shame", made from previous "fails" (earlier attempts to make knives that went wrong).
Full convex ground from spine down to the cutting edge for strength, low flex, and ease of cut. The heel has been rounded over smooth to keep the hand safe. The full cutting edge is exposed for sharpening and touch up maintenance.
The woods were a gift from two different friends. I used them to bring some good vibes to the new blades.
The handles have been sealed with a varnish/oil mix to aid in their protection.
