    Leave it to my brother Dan to purchase all of the available ELMAX in the U.S. and europe at the time from Bohler, to pour into some killer cool blades from the Yard!!! :eek:

    He has surface ground this ELMAX stock down to an ultra thin .090", given these blades a full height flat grind, and then taken the edges to a vapor thin .008" - .010" prior to sharpening!!!!

    Specs: Scrap Max 3.75

    Steel: ELMAX
    Hardness: 60-62 Rc
    Blade length: 3 3/4"
    Overall Length: 8 3/4"
    Thickness: .090"
    Finish: Machined Satin
    Weight: 3.3 Ounces
    Grind: Full-Height Vapor Grind
    Price: $79.95

    You can expect this to be the first of many models you will see in ELMAX from my big bro. :thumbup:

    Rock 'em sock 'em Danny the Bull ! ! ! ! :thumbup:

    Proud little brother,

    Jerry :D
