Tempt not the Blade

Happy B-day CPK sub!!!
One thing I appreciate about CPK is that every facet of the design and materials including heat treat is open for discussion and explanation.
With most companies you look at the product, hope for the best, and either buy it or not.
Yes it's very interesting to watch the time go by. It does not seem that long ago when I was spending hours and hours researching knife steel and makers from Blade Forums. It seemed like every Google search I would do related to various topics would bring me back to posts and forums on Blade Forums. And as a result of that learning time and researching I kept coming across references to Nathans knives, and to his work with 3 V steel.Fellow CPK'ers and esteemed CPK + Lorien:
It was on an auspicious day, June 17th 2016 when this sub unbeknownst to Jo was born
Throughout these 4 years, those of us who have been around since Day 1 have seen many tribulations with very little trials (because Nathan is never a whiner). We have seen CPK grow into a powerhouse and one of the most respected businesses on the Blade Forums. Although some of the older participants are not with us (figure of speech, not meant as literal facts) and a few take parts less in the daily banter, with the addition of the new folks this sub still remains quite engaging and for the most parts very informative.
Enjoy and hope to see you all around these parts, happy and healthy on the 5th anniversary of CPK's and for many more of those beyond that one
Absolutely.... Keep growing and keep it fun....Thank you so much for your birthday wishes. It's such a pleasure to be able to make work for you fine people. And Uncle Matty too. Everybody here at CPK appreciates your interest in our work. We are growing here and getting into some pretty cool projects. You guys make this possible.
And getting to visit with folks like @hardknocks and @casimostocks and many others. Mike gave me my first Zero tolerance, and I am still grateful for that. Marks folder has become iconic in our circlers, and Austin loves showing it to people after years of hard labor….
