Re: need testers/feedback

I have more or less sto...

Re: need testers/feedback

Z-Knives also has a very comprehensive database. http://www.zknives.com/knives/steels/steelchart.php These are the guys that supply the domestic knifemaker market and many of the big MFGs as well.

Re: need testers/feedback

no worries ben, i dont mind explaining my process and discussing the details. Ive paid special attention to every part of this process so I could dial it in and have something to offer in this price range.
