The steel is approximately .185” thick and is CPM154. The blade length is approximately 4 3/4” tip to bolster and 9” overall. I did the heat and cryo treatment. It sports an 8” hollow grind and is mirror polished all the way. The bolster has sculpted finger relief on both sides and is concave on the rear side.
11/5/07 Just got in the new November 07 issue of Blade magazine and I was flipping through it and came across this.
I had Jim Cooper (www.sharpbycoop.com) take a picture of this one at the blade show. The full picture he took is just above here.
Kind of a nice surprise… Good job Jim, thanks.
