The sheath is the container of the knife and has more main functions of safely transporting a white weapon, usually knife, dagger or sword.

In history all cutting weapons were equipped with sheath, knives, swords, axes, etc. were equipped with the sheath that also became an accessory with multiple functions such as carrying steel, or a barbed wire trunk in bayonets, etc.

But one thing is certain, a fixed-bladed knife without a sheath is not easily transportable safely. Continue reading “The knife sheath”

Niolox steel is a stainless steel produced by Lohmann(or n679 produced by Bohler) that has a special composition that improves its resistance by giving it the strength of the sharp wire of a high-carbonsteel, but with better resistance to corrosion.

NIOLOX is therefore a stainless steel with good toughness and a good grip capacity of the cutting edge.

7 causes that generate cracks when turning off the knife after the hardening just came out of the oven.

The cracks, cracks or cracks of the steel parts of the knives in service while you use it or while you are producing it occur very rarely fortunately, it is much easier than it does not temprite properly but when the steel blade “cracks”, the consequences are disastrous.

Translated, you have to throw away the blade!

Wheels for abrasive pastaThe abrasive dough wheels are cotton wheels on which the abrasive pastes are applied to perform on the knife and handle an abrasion until you reach a polish.

This is the operation that usually final when the knife is now finished or on the guard before mounting, etc. depends on what you are doing.

Wheels, cotton discs, sisal and felt are together with solid abrasive pastes for polishing metals but also handles. Continue reading “Wheels for abrasive pasta”

N690

N690CO stainless steel, is a steel used a lot in the knives both industrial and by many makers for the high hardness and resistance to wear, good resistance to corrosion.

This is not the first steel to use to make knives but over time it is definitely a steel that you have to put in your set of materials.

N690 is a steel produced by Bohler-Uddeholm and is a chromium and cobalt martensitic steel, molybdeno and vanadium. Continue reading “Steel N690 Co”
