    Woah o_O.

    Was this post-heat treat? I.e. could it be a heat treat problem?

    You use Peters don't you? I'd be interested to hear what they think.

    Were you putting it under stress at the time or just holding it?

    I was just holding it.

    I looked at if for 5 minutes.
    I thought I was actually hallucinating.

    Never broken a blade before.
    Yes it was post HT.
    I'm currently looking into what happened.

    Have you done any more "destruction testing" on the broken bits? ... Just to determine if the whole piece of steel stock is brittle, or if it was just in that one spot?

    Something similar happened to Hunter Martin (Huntsman Knife Co) with Nitro V (link to bladeforums post), he said it was "rare nitrogen inclusions that formed due to the HT protocol used"

    I have not done any more destructive testing.
    It will be sent to Peter's on friday or Saturday for analysis.

    I do Remember that issue he had. Very odd.
