Making a blade out of a leaf spring is always a crapshoot, because it could be one of a variety of steels, each with their own HT procedure. It's probably best to grab some from a place like New Jersey Steel baron or Alpha Knife supply, cause you know what you're gonna get.
A few things up for sale. First off is my ZT0801 in S110V, #386. Knife is uncarried and unused. Comes with box and paperwork. Asking $290.
Next up is a Kershaw Skyline with Brown G10 and black DLC blade. Knife has been carried and used lightly. Still has sharp factory edge. Comes with...
From what I have observed, I must agree with OP. Karda has overstepped his boundaries, and in the process has lost any sense of impartial judgment, to the point that it is a detriment to certain paying members of the forum.
They didn't make too many.
But when they popup they're quite reasonable at ~$400. There was one for sale here last month. You just need to keep you eyes peeled.
Tim also works for Kershaw and they make(made?) a production version (#1790) with the SpeedAssist.
Obviously not the same...
No problem. I found some pictures of the one I owned and you can see they came in a different handle pattern as well.
Stuff like the blade centering was spot on, and the IKBS bearings made it a super smooth flipper.
They have since been discontinued but the Tim Galyean Pro Series were great knives. I owned a Turbulence and it was a fantastic flipper with great F&F. :thumbup:

They popup every now and again.
As far as I know it will not. People have anodized Sebenza's to much success, and they are stonewashed as well. There are a couple members on the forum that will do custom anodizing for a fee. It would probably be less expensive than getting all the equipment to do it yourself.
Couple things, what type of steel are you cutting? And what drill diameter?
The formula for spindle speed is RPM=(3.82*(cutting speed in surface feet per minute))/cutter diameter
The cutting speed is a function of material type and hardness. In general coolant or lubricant should be used in...
You can heat anodize it with a blowtorch, although this will give a generally uneven coloration. The other process uses electricity, and is much more involved, but gives a uniform and more controllable color.
