    Leaf spring knife or knives

    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.

    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.

    Anyone have their ZDP-189 blades rust?

    I have some light stain spots on a ZDP Dragonfly, most likely from pumpkin carving last Halloween (detail work ;)). I gave the blade a rinse afterwards, guess I simply wasn't thorough enough.

    What Midtech/semi-custom folder should I get?

    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...

    What Midtech/semi-custom folder should I get?

    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.

    What Midtech/semi-custom folder should I get?

    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: The Turbulence The Lahar The Junkyard Dawg They popup every now and again.

    Overbuilt custom folders. Brands, Pics!

    It ain't mine (wish it was :D) Andrew Demko is the designer of the Tri-Ad lock, which he has licensed to Cold Steel in addition to some design collaborations. Hence the similarities.

    Zero Tolerance 0801S110V Limited Run

    Thanks for the correction. The Sebenza blades are stonewashed though, right? For some reason I thought they both were.

    Zero Tolerance 0801S110V Limited Run

    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. Try Maprik...

    Drilling hardened steel?

    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...

    Zero Tolerance 0801S110V Limited Run

    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.
