"Love the look of that one Dale. Very nice indeed. If I were to spend money on knives at the moment I'd probably order the Pearl one. Or splurge and get a Chute knife from A.G......too many knives...too little money."

"Hey! I've got one of those! But in Black Micarta with a Texas Ranger shield on it. Still one of my favourite knives. Bit on the heavy side with it's 1/4" thick blade. But an excellent slicer nonetheless."

Alexander Noot replied to Tobias Gibson's discussion Which steel would you choose?
"I know that most steels were not developed for the cutlery industry. There are a few exceptions. However that doesn't mean that they're not suitable. And the same is true vice versa. Some steels that are used expressly as cutlery steels…"

Alexander Noot replied to Tobias Gibson's discussion Which steel would you choose?
"My point exactly. 420HC is no more than a decent cutlery steel. It's ok...if you don't mind sharpening again and again. 12C27 was developed as a razor blade steel..... You guess which one is more suitable for cutlery."

The 2015 DKE (Dutch Knife Exhibition) and my personal experience this year.

Posted on April 21, 2015 at 4:14 1 Comment

So this past saturday we had the DKE. And unlike some previous years where I was able to take LOT's of pictures and write commentairy for them.

This year I didn't get around to that at all. But let me tell you about the show from the perspective of a fairly novice maker. (This was only my 3rd show attending as a maker)

At 6:30am a friend of mine came to pick me up. The guy is one of my closest friends and although we sometimes don't talk to each other for weeks…

Ja het gaat er hier zeker vriendelijk aan toe. Ik voel me zeker welkom.

Ben nieuwsgierig hoeveel van het messen maken doe je zelf?

Ik neem aan dat je je staal inkoopt en niet zelf smeed?

Nadat je het lemmet af hebt en het handvat gaat maken.

Doe je de rest dan ook nog zelf, hout voor handvat stabiliseren, staal harden?

Ik heb begrepen dat 10x0 staal best zelf te harden is maar alle "super" stalen eigenlijk 

niet te doen zijn. Ben me een beetje aan het verdiepen in staal soorten

maar ben er nog niet uit wat ik er van vindt. Simpel koolstof staal dat makkelijk te slijpen en te harden is en ook heel scherp word. Of de exotische stalen zoals Elmex en zo.

Ik kan hier nog veel leren in ieder geval.

Succes met je hobby

Je maakt mooie messen

Groetjes

Richard
