If you showed me the first photo and told me it was cut from swarovski crystal I would have believed you


I use a wonderful, almost magical sanding cloth:
Micro-Mesh

Knife lovers might find it useful to polish any metal like a mirror. And any lacquered surface too for wood lovers ;-)

12000 grit do wonders... it's smoother than touching a sheet of paper, yet it is a real efficient abrasive surface. I usually do 2400 -> 6000 -> 12000 (starting from a smooth surface using classic fine sandpaper of course)

Colour as an indicator of gender is transient.

wikipedia wrote:In Western culture, the practice of assigning pink to an individual gender began in the 1920s[12] or earlier.[13] From then until the 1940s, pink was considered appropriate for boys because being related to red it was the more masculine and decided color, while blue was considered appropriate for girls because it was the more delicate and dainty color, or related to the Virgin Mary.[14][15][16] Since the 1940s, the societal norm was inverted; pink became considered appropriate for girls and blue appropriate for boys, a practice that has continued into the 21st century.[17]


Vanity and grooming on the other hand have always been feminine traits ;)

I have seen that any knife cant be sharpened to the point that you can actually cut wet newspaper cleanly. That is pretty extreme sharpness and the blade material is in big state when it comes to sharpness. We can compari like 440c stainless and 52100 ballbearing steel. The alloys in 52100 gives it much smaller grain size and it sharpens much more sharper.

So if blader material is good, you can get it sharp. For sharpening to extreme sharpness, i use japanese waterstones and for polishing i use my selfmade polishing compound and 10" x 20" piece of leather glued to a piece of glass to get it straight.

And not to mention the heat treatment is in big factor in the bladeshapening as well. 54hrc knife doesnt take as good edge as 59hrc.

So you see, there is lots of factors in bladesharpening.

my knive is made out of 14c28n steel, hardened to 60 hrc.

14c28n is an improved razor-blade steel, with nitrogen added to increase corrosion resistance.

can you split hairs with your knives, when properly sharpened?

No, but i can split heads.



HAHA :D .


Yeah lab, that 14c28n steel looks like pretty good bladesteel. Only thing that i dont like is that huuuuuuge chromium prosent, and tyheres no vanadium in the blade. Those are bad when it comes to sharpening. Chromium gives it more sharpness and so does vanadium, but when there is no vanadium the blade is very brittle if not heat treated properly. What brand knife that is?
