Hi guys, both of these pass around knvies ....the 165mm nitro v petty and the 250mm 15n20 blade are out and about. feel free to PM me your assessments or post here. Either way is fine with me. These are both experimental blades , so dont hold back on your criticisms. I thrive off of it :)

The 250mm arrived here a couple days ago but it will be after the weekend before I can put it to good use.
You went serious flat spot with this one! Looking forward to seeing how it does.

If you are interested in trying out a good heat treat joint (carbon monoxide atmosphere with great oven control along with quench in oil or water at differing temps) pm me. I used to do a lot of heat treat on hysteresis rings for gyro spin motors (mostly military stuff) and the guys I worked with back then are still in the Chicago area. Top notch and would probably work with you if there is a long term plan.

Hey Tim, I have the petty. Been working it over pretty good. I'll have feedback later. Where is this going next? Thx, Cody
