ABS Journeyman Bladesmith Performance Test Pictures

Feb 10, 2000
Hi guys,

Recently I was honored to be asked to take some pictures and information down and put up a web site showing the knife performance tests as they were taken by knife maker J.W. Randall of Louisiana. Mr. Randall was taking this portion of his ABS test during the ABS Fall Hammer-In in Old Washington Arkansas on Oct 28, 2000. Mastersmith J.R. Cook asked me to undertake this project and I readily agreed

I thought that this would be of interest to many of my fellow knife nuts - both those who are familiar with ABS knives and their stringent performance requirements as well as those who may not be familiar.

Truly an eye opener I think. Enjoy the pics!
