From what I just read does that mean that if there is still decab left on the blade there woould be less carbon and making the surface levels weaker but busse it would seem to not get rid of all the decarb in the case of infi dimples that people find when they strip the coating off it. If I have them than doesn't that mean the knife surface is not as strong as the rest of the blade and then is that the reason that satin knives pull such a high price becouse it is better with the blade being sand all the way if this is true let me know
In order to lose weight, you have to de-carb.
And the dimples were a result of Nitrogen being introduced in the high temerature heat treat process that Busse uses.
Could be wrong though.
no, dimples are part of the heat treat and rough blast they get.....
this is after he talked to jerry about it, so I assume it's straight from the source.
Here's a question: say we strip a CG tankbuster...is there a decarb layer there to worry about? Or was it only the few 08 competition models that dont get this ground off?
I strip only the blade, so the steel under the scale is protected against the rust.
