Yup, it says Nathan... 62.0 is the HRC, see my above post
Thank you so much for the great post and confirmation. The sincerity is undeniable..and I'm starting to understand. Absolutely love the FK1. Was my choice as first on specs/looks alone over the 2. This one is my second and had to try the 2. The FK2 is outstanding. Much different in hand than looks along suggest. 2 feels slightly more nimble, lighter in the ass. With both in your had..you can absolutely feel the exploration of philosophy towards the DEK's, for sure.
Both outstanding, love the differences on both for what they are and their purpose. Glad I dont have to choose. It would be the FK1 if I did. Prefer the blade profile and the slightly flatter scales. And it's always the same word when anyone sees/comments, my buddy, this very night,(knows nothing from knives) as I was handing him the knife said "nice", when he took and unsheathed it, looked at me, smiled and his very next word was "sexy"..haha..And it absolutely is
Very happy about this. I wished they'd run a few of my favorite steels a few points higher. DV3 is a new favorite, so..my instinct was right..62.0! WooHoo
Tha is again, @Casinostocks. Most appreciated
You are welcome
BTW in case you are not already aware, the hard and thin version of the FK2 is running at a slightly higher HRC, so there is also that one.
Thought hard thin was a thinner stock as well as thinner grind ?..ran a little harder? I think I had that wrong. Thought were .160+/-, closer to DEK stock..
Didnt think I needed a hard thin. I do. damn
The stock thickness is the same, the primary grind is slightly thinner making it thinner behind the edge. The primary grind starts just ever so slightly higher not really that discernible unless you have them both side by side and scrutinize them very carefully (there are some pics posted). Nathan nicknamed that harder / thinner version, “bad idea”.
*not good idea..haha. I like it. Typically like/prefer higher grind. Yes, I want one.
Well, I layed off the last sales when they were offered. I'm guessing sold out? I'll ask Jo if there's any left.
Was just about ready to cool it, couple of unexpected came up I couldn't pass. Looks like another one I need.
Thanks? again @Casinostocks
Correction: “bad idea” was the actual nickname but I think that Jo can still help you wi to one at the next sale
Ahh. " Bad idea"..
Definitely rolls off the tongue better. Glad he changed it
I’m guessing that the perfect little divot one can see just before the “6”, is the indent left by the Rockwell tester. Mike
62.0 is the Rockwell hardness. I circled the mark left by the Rockwell hardness tester. I think it says Nathan - which sucks for you because he may want it back, and I mean his name IS on it.
I hope not..
I sanded it off cleaning up the corrosion. Shit.
Anybody got a Sharpie?
You wiped it off?!?
I ain't the brightest stick in the drawer.
Took me almost 10yrs to find my way into CPK's..what does that tell ya..
Oh man! That could’ve been worth a lot of money, like something signed by Picasso.
Tell you what. Send the rest of your CPKs to me for safe keeping. Just in case.
You're probably right, Swarthy..ok, PM me the shipping address. Better safe than sorry
just landed. wow. I placed it down gently, didnt want to damage the dial.
Now folks everywhere are going to be pulling their scales to see what's under there. Attn Ninjo, restock your fastener hardware
Mishpocha, one of the OG's of the FKs:
I remember when you picked that one up. I had held off because it wasn’t Delta 3V. I remember it sat for a bit. IIRC you picked it up because yo wanted it to “stay in the family”. Still kick myself sometimes. Those scales! Not something I would normally like but for some reason I do.
