Not enough people on this board have had the experience of being poor.

That too. I bought some tools. A new hammer, some tongs, a mandrel, a leather apron, coal, and 50 pounds of coke.
Also got a leaf spring pack from a 1 ton pickup. Hey DT! Wanna do a collaboration on a knife?
Sure.
I think the geographic issue might make it a pretty expensive knife.

no one said it was easy. as a matter of fact its super fucking hard. it was so hard for me i didnt know if the biproduct which was more than money was worth it. as i said i chose not to be poor and it was a lot of fucking working. its super easy to do nothing and not do the things to make a difference. i chose to grind it out and it certainly came with its own set of problems.

I still don’t see it as a choice. For some people, they have abilities that, if they put them to work, could do very well. I have friends like that, they chose to spend their time getting stoned and never went anywhere. They had a choice.

There are a lot of poor people born into poor neighborhoods with terrible schools and they may also be, to be direct, stupid too. They don’t have any tools to get them out of where they are. There’s not really much choice there.

in my 25 years running my own business, i have never had one single person, employee, son, daughter, etc ever show any kind of interest in one day running it. There are opportunities all over the place for a person that is highly motivated and really REALLY wants to succeed. And no education is required.

the only tool i had was me. i went to the worst schools in the county. i call bullshit on not having a choice. i know plenty of people that rose out of it. im not saying its easy or anyone can do it. what i am saying is that if you make getting a head as important as breathing you can do almost anything. i went bk in 2008, i lost everything i built for several reasons. i was a raging drunk on top of it. i had to piss in the sink at my house because they turned my water off and i had no power. i had no help and lost everything. i couldn't file unemployment because i was always self employed. i made a promise to me that i would never be in that position again and here i am.

I figure we work out a design for the whole thing, I'll forge the thing out, get it shaped and beveled.

Not yet, gimme a few minutes to check the design and specs. I'm still on monosteel, just got a load of 5160.


Addded; that knife is like my women, curvy. Yeah I can do that. You want to do a hidden tang or through tang?

i don't understand why you guys, with your skills, don't perfect the kitchen knife. like that kramer dude does. one that won't rust, stays sharp, looks nice, affordable and has the correct shape and length. the market for that seem to me to be huge.

There is always a trade-off. Stainless steel doesb't rust but it's a bitch to sharpen, carbon steel rusts but it holds an edge better. As for style, do you and your wife/girlfriend both have the same favorite knife?

I've always done full tang design.
My primary steel has always been 01 tool steel.
Simple heat treat,, get it up to 1500 degrees until it is no longer magnetic and quench in vegetable oil.
Two rounds of tempering at 375 and you usually can bet on a Rockwell hardness of 58-60.

5160 is a hard choice to argue against.
Just like 01, you just have to make sure your customer understands that it is not stainless and will rust or patina.

Kramer has a waiting list due to his processes.
He also commands thousands of dollars per knife with a several year waiting list.
I would love to own one, but can't justify the outlay.
The midsized chef's knife like I gave you, is by far my biggest seller of kitchen knives.
Also the wife and my favorite kitchen knife.

The cryogenically treated steel means that I only have to pass it across a good steel maybe once a year.
