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

4 Comment Uncategorized

BluntCut MetalWorks
Crystal Weaving Foundation Heat Treat, AEB-L 64rc
7.25″ edge length, 0.08″ spine thick, hollow grind
0.011″ behind edge thick
26 degrees inclusive bevel angle

Thanks for watching & comments

Edge afterward – a victim of low bevel angle & too sharp (added to apex steering lead to ripples)

    That’s a good test of the CWF process. Perhaps the really impressive part is the roll from chopping bones rather than chipping out. At 64Rc I’d expect a chip rather than the roll – Good proof of CWF it seems. BTW, I LOVE coconut water! Opened many a coconut with machete. I’m still working to get my stuff together to try your CWF process.

      Under microscope, rolls are way thinner than posted 13dps. At the big roll, under 22x mag + micrometer & caliper, it’s 11dps. Yeah, definitely too thin & sharp to chop turkey thigh bone. This blade is tougher than I expected – notice though, it has much more complex cwf ht.
      That coconut water was yummy – I want at least 2 more :p Last trip to VN – I often drink 3-4 coconuts at a time.

    You made chopping coconut so easy!
    With a lazy swing it took off the top just like that!
    Impressive!

      Thanks, Chris.
      I’ve a bunch of coconut/light-wood-cleaver knives, which are thicker & heavier more effective for dealing with young & old coconuts (w & w/o husk). I will finish up this knife – aim for less than 6 oz when all done.
