We can get our blades to a serviceable edge. This is sharp, but not sharp enough to shave with.
You know the Kevin Costner scene where the sword cuts the dropped piece of silk ... yeah, that one isn't going to happen for you with our servicable edge. With our premium sharpening service, however, we can get extremely sharp - often like a razor.
See, we know an expert here in New Mexico, Mike Coan of Re-New Sharpening. And if we give him some money and some time, he will put a very sharp edge on your knife. But, we're not talking small change here. It takes time - and a true master to create such an edge ... even from knives such as ours.
See our Pricing List for the premium sharpening cost.
For those interested, our knives feature a zero-grind style at between 7.5 and 11 degrees. We do each of these completely by-hand and by-eyeball. There are no jigs at work here. Our grinder
features a ten-inch wheel with a variable speed controller - and we run it at high pressures with a 70 duro contact wheel and 2 inch x 72-inch blaze ceramic belts.
We do not, however, weigh our knives. If you are worried about how much they weigh, you must be preparing to take them into space. Hope you have a good trip.
Our steels have been LaTrobe Dura Tech 20CV, ELMAX, M390, CTS-204P, Z-FINIT Nitrogen Steel, CPM-20CV and a couple in N690 and Cowry X. We are always experimenting - and always looking for new materials and treatments.
Our coatings are also specialized stuff: We use Black-T and Black Diamond DLC. Our blades are sent out to those two companies to accomplish that work, depending on the requirements of the project.
We do all our own firing and cryo work. Everything by-hand and by-heart.
FOR KNIFE BUILDS...
(yep. We are that busy)
Troops come first.
