hey Kace, if the Benchmade 552 is a little spendy at $118 they do other blades [drop point, tanto, sheepsfoot] in 154CM steel for quite a bit less:

This supplier has always worked out well in the past. No affiliations and all that.

Benchmade Auto Mini-Rukus.



Not really what I would call "Mini" but it's a great knife.

I carried this Benchmade-Emerson for many years 'til I got the Rukus.

I see.

It's just a tool to me. I don't care how it looks, I just want a knife that does what I ask of it, and the Benchmades fill the bill nicely. Kind of like my Glock pistol...

Here's a couple of custom made knives I made myself.

Bear with me, I am down here in Houston, heart of the oil patch, and biz is DEAD! So here is a post!

The top one is hand forged D2 tool steel. A customer at our heat treatment plant brought in a lathe dead center that had a chiped point asking our opinion as to why it failed. He left it and I forged it into a flat, annealed the blank, hand filed it to the shape above, then re-heat treated it. I ran it in one of our atmosphere furnaces and gave it the most severe quench possible in the quest of the best properties, a quick dip in oil followed by air cool to room temp., then triple tempering to 56/58 HRC. The handle is maple. Brass bolster.
The heat treatment yielded the deep blue color. I knew this going in to the project but wanted to find out for my self, D2 does not make a good knife because the high chrome content causes a sharp edge to flake, and that is exactly what happened. But it is a good looking knife thus a keeper. I keep a flat angle edge on it and it is just a looker

The bottom knife is O2 tool steel from a purchased flat. It was a quickie that turned out far better than I expected with regards performance. The heat treatment for this one was in an atmosphere furnace with an oil quench followed by a very risky freeze in liquid nitrogen, then tempering to 56/58 HRC. The risk is that the freeze with out tempering first can crack the material. Although not a " good looker" its ablity to hold an edge is unreal. The thin design has turned out to be pretty usfull and easy to carry. I field dressed 3 antilope and 3 deer and it will still shave. The severe freeze seems to have improved the corrosion resistance as well although I keep it coated with Birchwood Casey Sheath as soon after use as possible. Handle is walnut. Brass bolster.

Custom leather work by yours truly.

Thanks for reading. Use more oil, please.
