    How do you mill out the micarta for the tangs so precisely? Do you have a mill?

    FYI, I was able to get the one of these from the last ones Mr. Appleby posted here and they are truly exceptional. :)

    Very nice. What RC hardness for the AEBL? I have heard good things about getting it to a higher RC and still not be brittle. Is that the case? Just curious.

    I don't have an RC hardness tester. According to the heat treat specification charts with cryo this should finish up around 59/60 RC. I soak the blade for 15 minutes at 1950°, and cryo in liquid nitrogen for 1 hour followed by a 2 + 2 tempering cycle at 400. I have not had any issues with brittleness
