Who the hell are you to tell me about MY knives?!!!!!
but yes, that's correct.
Well...I seen one once
I thought that it was only the free chromium left in stainless that was what provided the stainless property’s. Thanks
It is the free chromium, I usually call it chromium “in solution.” A typical heat treatment of 10V results in zero chromium carbide.
oh ok thank you for that.
Is it the little bit of chrome in tool steels that makes a difference in how fast they rust compared to simple carbon steels? M2 and CPM M4 being the examples that I am used to.
I'm guessing you have not seen the video of his gun
I got into stainless because I couldn't stand thinking the first time someone cuts an onion with one of my knives it's turning both the blade and onion black. I get a kick out of knowing people will use my knives, and I think that's more likely if it's a little less maintenance intensive than a carbon steel. I still work carbon steels for specific things, and personal projects.
