Mel Sorg Custom 4" Drop Point Hunter in D2

Mel passed away shortly after I joined the Forum. I was never lucky enough to get to know him. I would have liked to discuss D2 heat treating with him and the use of the planer blade material.
I like the Persian style knives he made that I saw on Chiros webpage.
Im glad you use D2 as a reference in your testing. That puts things into a good perspective for me when I read your reviews and evaluations!

For those who read this and may not know, I have compiled a rather extensive archive of Mel's knives, with pictures and descriptions. The URL is below. I have four knives that were made by Mel, only one being of his design (the others were customs), and I just can't seem to bring myself to use any of them anymore. Oh well...there are other good knives I own that are just as worthy of torture... BTW, if you own a Madpoet knife and it is not archived on my site, please get in touch with me so I can get pictures from you...

Kudos to Chiro on a job well done on this site. FWIW, I am having the same problem when it comes to using my two Sorg knives (one a clip point skinner, the second a custom camp knife). That Clip Point Skinner was my favorite user too!

You did a great job on the site. The knives are beautiful. I had spoke with Mel some before his passing. That was very difficult for me when he left us. I am sure that it was much worse for those that new him better. Thank you for keeping his memory alive. He made beautiful knives. It is great that I can see them now, when ever I like.

Thank you,
