    In that videos we had cut a 8mm-diameter bolt and a 13mm-head nut. In both cases the objects are put on a steel vice. The knife had cut everything and takes a couple of knocks against the vice. We had used a 1 kg hammer. The vice is blocked at the legs of the test bench so there are not impact absorption. The knife edge had not suffer damages in any case.

    Here, some photos in which the knife edge should be more evident

    Those bolts are generally quite soft steel, yet it remains quite spectacular.

    Dear Morganleah,
    I want to ask the rasul that you used in nut and bolt cutting test is a prototype or a mass production from kr ? Because i have one, but the grind is not convex.

    Pretty slick. What advantages does the Vanadis 23 have over the Vanadis 4 Extra?
