Good deal Dan. No sheath needed for mine so I should be seeing it soon. Thanks
I sent you an email on March 6th 2012 saying this:
I have still not heard back from you. I would like to have news please.
TheNick - I sincerely apologize. I have found the box - it was under another box that was in my "waiting for payment" stack. It's now on its way. Again, I apologize for the delay.
I have now shipped Bushcraft 12c27 stainless knives/sheaths to the following:
Thanks for the update Dan!
thanks for the update Dan
got the USPS notification
Any status update for mine?
Me too, sent the check on Jan. 23rd. Emailed ya, but i guess you've been busy.
justinxbailey - I'm waiting on the leather sheaths - they should be shipping to me this week.
chugokujin - yours would have mailed on Friday except that I forgot to add the FS loop to the kydex sheath. I'm doing that today. :thumbup:
I need to hear from Tcurry asap.
Dan, Would you lemme know when it does go out so i can look for it? Thanks
Mine made it. Thanks Dan really like it!
A few down and dirty shots. Will take better pics later.
Great pics - like the last one best. :thumbup:
Glad the Bushcraft made it safe-n-sound. Enjoy!
Just got notification from JRE that the sheaths are done and will ship tomorrow. :thumbup:
Here are a few more. I really like the contours on the handle and that jimping is so tough it would stop a 18 wheeler. Nice!
Extremely nice knife. Love the handle conture. Blade thickness looks about perfect as well, is that 1/8" ?
Best regards and congrats to this beautiful piece.
8.5" Overall length
4" blade, 0.100" thick 12c27 Stainless, ~59HRc, Scandi Grind
Yes - for me, this knife is perfect. It is light/easy to carry, yet long enough and sturdy enough to do a hard day's work. The steel is easy to sharpen, stainless, yet has enough carbon in it to compete with carbon-steel knives. The contouring in the handle makes it very comfortable and nimble.
I'm definitely doing another run (or 2....or 10!!!) in this steel.
I've used D2, O1, CPM154, S30V and ATS-34.
But I've narrowed it down to just these two - 3V and 12c27. 3V is an amazing, super-steel. 12c27 is a perfect cutlery steel. The specs on it are amazing. Works easily in my shop, and sharpens to a finer edge. I just wish I could get it in sheet form!
If I am not mistaken you have also used 1095 (in my beloved woodlore psk blank), and this is also *very* nice. I haven't tried your 12c27, but the 1095 psk is probably my sharpest knife (also easiest to resharpen) that I own. After hours of carving it still shaves hair off my arm. When it does eventually get dull it takes few minutes to resharpen with my waterstones (1000 / 6000 mostly).
Do you plan on making another psk / woodlore run with thin stock like the one I have ? (It's around 2.2mm)
Maybe in 12c27 ?!
I have a PSK list open right now - in 1095 steel, 0.100" thick (2.5mm)
I am definitely considering making it in 12c27 as well. :thumbup:
