    The first S125V knife in several years has just rolled through the Big Chris shop.

    I have several of these blades heat treated and ready for finishing.
    All the blades are half tang and set up for two corby bolts.
    I have two more lined up in my next batch of blades.

    The blades are .160" thick and were heat treated by Peters to 62-63 Rc, blade length is 4.9"
    S125V is quite difficult to work with since it cannot be sawn and can't be drilled without carbide.
    In it's annealed state as I receive it from the mill the blades are 45 Rc.
    However, the finished edges are INSANE.
    They have an aggressiveness to their cut that is on another level, much more so than 10V.

    If your interested in one let me know, shoot me a message or an email to [email protected]
