    Thank you for your interest and kind words. This is a nicely made and properly balanced blade. It feels good to hold it, and the weight is like nothing because of the handle and balance.
    Haven’t tested it yet, but I will. Looks very sharp.

    And to think, his brothers or cousins probably make AKs next door with similar tools.

    Nice looking knife!

    Their grinds are described on their website. Those are not the descriptors. They name the grinds by intended use.

    I'd bet a cross section of the grind would demonstrate it's one of the known grinds in that link. Do you know if it's got a primary and secondary grind or only one?

    From their site; differential oil quenching and tempering process

    It's likely made of one of these steels


    4140
    4142
    4145
    4150
    4340
    1045
    52100
    O-1 Tool steel
    O-6 Tool Steel
    S-5 Tool Steel

    52100 is ball bearing steel
    4140 is used in making rifle barrels
    O-1 is a common carbon tool steel used in blades
    Not familiar with the other steels above.

    Leaf springs are usually 5160 and the coil springs 1095 but the blade would have to be tested to know for sure what elements are in the steel of yours.

    The performance grind is supposed to have the greatest cutting efficiency. Probably thinner secondary, sharper edge.
    their heavy duty is supposed to be damn near indestructable. For batoning through bicycle frames, bricks, rocks, digging and prying.

    Thanks, I suspected it was 5160, same steel Bagwell makes the Hell Belle's out of. Very strong and used on the longer blades by many smiths.

    I canít get over how the weight feels so much less when you hold it by the handle in a normal grip. The handle is large enough for even my big mitts, and comfortable. And the blade moves like an extension of my hand. I can almost believe that I could sign my name with the tip of the blade.
