Default Is it gonna break?

Did my journeyman smith performance test this weekend. Knife must cut 1Ē rope in one swing, then chop a 2x4 in half twice, then shave hair, then bend 90 degrees without breaking.

J. W. Randall supervised. Yeah, 5160 edge quenched.

Yep, just paid for a Blade show table today. I'm at 7Q.

Now I just have to make five perfect knives in 60 days

We didnít do a lot of things, LOL. The last time I did one we took the edge off with the grinder. This time we just bent them sharp.
