CWF HT Tempering

No Comments Uncategorized

I’ve been tested most of CWF HT-ed knives in untempered condition and at peak hardness. Weaknesses are highly amplified when blade at this state. For some steels, this condition is actually their optimal operating/usage state – ‘micro ripple, macro fracture’ edge. For most of other steels, this condition (very stiff […]

Minimizing Edge Damages

No Comments Uncategorized

Let’s define, a cutting-edge as a wedge 0.08″ tall from the edge. And geometry: 0.01″ thick, 30* inclusive bevel, 0.5um apex radius. When this edge subjected to damaging forces: Pressure/Compression => increase hardness to limit damaging depth. Lateral => increase strength and elasticity. In effective, broaden (broad & depth) affected […]

CWF HT AEBL 64rc Kitchen Util Thin Hollow vs turkey thigh bones

Stain resistant Sleaver Challenge – basically, a stainless steel slicer with light bone cleaver capability. Tasks: cut & chop a whole fresh & frozen turkey into 1″ cube stew chunks – bones included. Specs: 0.08-0.13″ thick, 1.5″ wide, 7-8″ edge, up-swept point, 7-10 oz Edge geometry: 0.010-0.015″BET/12-15dps, micro-bevel 18-20dps. Qualifying: […]

CWF HT 2+ nested structures and interfaces/boundaries

2 Comment Uncategorized

The published cwf ht procedure is a good starting/prototyping point. Changes in energy(via temperature) state are operators, where driving forces define texture and scope. COG (Combinatorial Optimization Graph) 3rd goal – the resulting graph has low thermal expansion coefficient, especially within operation condition. Basically, saying – we want a working […]

HRC CWF vs Conventional HT – aebl aust 1960F, 20 minutes soak

Applicability of edge geometry: 0.015″BET/15dps Conventional 63rc has very low impact toughness and rapid loss of apex radius below 400nm. CWF HT 64rc supports moderate-to-working impact toughness and sustain apex radius below 200nm. CWF HT aging 63.5rc low impact toughness – sub par compare to cwf ht 64rc 1F/minute. 1.5F/minute […]

CWF – barely started

Started with 2 layer of nested crystal structures, how many layers can we weave/build? More than two layers seem like a natural/infer progression. Visual confirmation of each additional layer will be challenging because of each subsequent layer will be smaller than outer layer/shell. Clever/creative/innovative ht nesting cycles could build deeper […]

Crystal Weaving Foundation – ‘How’ and a little bit of ‘Why’

No Comments Uncategorized

Its conceptual goal is to build a strong & tough solid using identical shape small building unit. Between units & group of units – interconnection, gap and vacancies determine strength & toughness of the result solid. I use Combinatorial Optimization Graph to distilled 2 optimization goals: * Maximize interconnectivity between […]
