crazyfoxltd123 ( off feebay ) D2 Knife ..
This be my 2nd knife from crazyfoxltd123 ... My first being a 1095 that blew chunks .
That first knife was soft ..
This knife ordered , is supposedly D2 .... Still SOFT !
Yes the blade steel is buttery soft !
ANd I have to wonder if any attempt at all was made to harden the steel ? It's just that soft ...
I think the seller sells some really nice looking knives , but when form trumps function ?
Yeah , this knife might be as useful as a rusty nail ...
I sharpened it and in doing so , suffered a major case of buyers remorse . ( Sooooooffft )
Just how badly can you get it wrong ?
So after two knives , I am assuming these knives might be less a heat treat !
Oh well , slicing paper ...
It's bad , really bad !
Aside from the grind , the soft steel ....
It's a great looking knife , even feels ok in the hand .. Sheath seems well made ! Just a shame the knife does not actually fit . ...... Yeah !
So on my little bench grinder we go and make some corrections .. Now the knife fits the sheath .
It really look great ( the knife ) for a dried up dog left over ! ( I am making assumptions ) .
THe rope will tell the tale of woe or less woe ? ( It might be all woe and no go )
One knife does not make a review or what ever ..
But two knives , both seemingly without heat treat ? Now a interesting tale that might make .
