Bok: Knife Engineering: Steel, Heat Treating, and Geometry. Av Dr. Larrin Thomas (knifesteelnerds.com)


Recommended Posts

Ikke ofte det kommer ut bøker om kniver, så tipser om denne som jeg oppdaget nå:


Knife Engineering: Steel, Heat Treating, and Geometry, av Dr. Larrin Thomas. Juli 2020, fra eget forlag.


Fra omslaget:


An in-depth exploration of the effects of different steels, heat treatments, and edge geometries on knife performance. This book provides ratings for toughness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance for all of the popular knife steels. Micrographs of over 50 steels. Specific recommended heat treatments for each steel. And answers to questions like: 1) Does a thinner or thicker edge last longer? 2) What heat treatment leads to the best performance? 3) Are there performance benefits to forging blades? 4) Should I use stainless or carbon steel? All of these questions and more are answered by a metallurgist who grew up around the knife industry.

Ikke bare skrev han boka, men kom også opp med et nytt stål. De beste egenskapene fra karbon og rustfritt?

Linker også til et intervju med han som ble gjort i oktober 2020, altså før MagnaCut var blitt en realitet/eller gjort kjent:
