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:

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:

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.

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.

more thoughts....:D :p



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!

Dan,

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 ?!

Best regards.

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:
