When it comes to the steel that I use for my crafts, i'm not really picky. I'm not really a metal snob....yet!
I got a special delivery today straight from my new favorite place, knifemaking.com. I ordered a piece of 1095 high carbon steel.
For years I have been using repurposed steel that I salvage, but lately I have been experimenting with buying the steel. I will always have a soft spot for old steel, but the ease of use on a new piece is priceless.
A lot of the knives that I have made are 1/4", big, bulky, and awesome. There is a place for every kind of knife, and I am going to branch out a bit.
This new piece is 3/16", so it should make for an easier to manage finished knife. I am hoping to move from mostly bushcraft style to a more every day carry style.
The reason I chose this title is because I think there is a real pleasure that comes from treating yourself to something nice. By "this steel" I mean a new piece.
Lastly, this steel comes already annealed! That means I will be able to skip a few steps and get right into creating!
I hope you all are enjoying these videos, and I will see you later in the shop!
