Huh? FYI, there is nothing more precise than the good old Stahlschlüssel. Stahlschlüssel - since 1951 the publisher of the worldwide unique cross reference manual Stahlschlüssel (Key to Steel), well-known to everyone dealing with steel. Available as book or on CD-ROM (material database including...
BTW, have you tried the 3D PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader 7 or better required) models of the knives on www.nordlandmesser.de? Playing with the 3D models gives a pretty good first overall impression of the knives ...
just wanted to show both my Pasvik and Pasvikka in their 'Tactical Version'.
Steel is 1.2552, a tool steel with 0.8% carbon, 1% chromium, 0.25% vanadium and appr. 2% tungsten. Tough and scary sharp. Hardness is 58-59 HRC, the knives feature a Kalgard GunKote coating. The Kydex sheaths...
The SB1 indeed is very tough for a stainless steel, it takes a very fine edge and retains its edge for quite some time.
Nb is a very aggressive carbid former, even more aggressive than Vanadium and Titanium. Recent results from Coelho et al.'s experiments show, that NbC (mono-carbides) are...
Bigjohn, thanks for you feedback. I do prefer the desert ironwood over every other wood for its properties and huh, its 'optical appearance' once it is finished. Deep amber and whisky, the way sunlight is reflected within the desert iron wood ...

That's wonderful. I hope the three of you will have a great time. All the best wishes! I guess no words can describe how proud and happy the parents must be. Awesome.
(And I am sure she came with the usual Busse-delivery time of two...
@Lucky Bob, thanks for your feedback, I will shoot some pictures with a darker background, a dark blue, probably. I found dark blue gives a nice contrast with the blades. You can see the 'double thumb grooves' on the picture with the top view of both the knife and the carnassial teeth. I will...
@Lanza: Thanks. :)
There is also a 'fancy family theme', well some sort of. :) Here we go.
And there is also one with a colour that I have never used on a knife before. (I do blame it on Absolut.)
Hi Sean, wow! The knife is definitely beautiful. The shape of the blade is neat and clean. I also like that handle a lot. Is there black fiber between the spacers or is that blackwood as well? I really wonder what copper and brass spacers would look like on a desert ironwood handle ...
