    Was doing some modified heat treatments of S7 and shot this blade with a Ruger 41 mag. to test impact resistance. Blade was hit twice, at the spine and edge. No cracking or fractures. Full impact at 15 yds.

    That's pretty good with no cracking and all. I like the bisley too!

    Good shootin' Tex! I'm shocked it didn't crack. Tough stuff.
