Good Evening!I acquired an old axe head a few years ago and I never thought much about it.  I found it in an old barn and the owner gave it to me as junk.  I had sort of planned on cleaning it,…Continue

"Lars,  Probably the first test to check the blade material is a simple magnet.  Carbon steel tends to be magnetic whereas most stainless steels are not.  This is not completely foolproof, but is a good place to start."

Hey man...thanks for the friend request...of course I accepted! As for sending private messages, this is just fine - but if you truely want to send a private message - use the iKC email - upper right hand corner of your page in the area of your name, sign out, Fried requests, etc...

I wanted to start a formal stand-alone CFK group, but I could not accurately gauge  if it would be accepted or not - so I started the it as a sub-group in the Box Full of Knives Box of Knives. I'm glad i did - as I commented to Lead Left Knife Guy , I seem to be the only one playing in that sand box at the moment, and I'm not sure my ego could manage no one join a group!  LoL!

Right now it looks like it's just my thread....but if you add a post to it, then it will be as it is intended - a place to appreciate the CFK/iPAC brand.
