#204

The steel is Elmax from the Swedish company Uddeholm

Weight: 248g

Length overall: 260mm

Balance point: 10mm in front of the bolster

Blade

The blade has convex grind with a thin edge and is tapered from the bolster to the tip. The tip has the same grind as the rest of the knife and is quite stiff.

The spine and choil has been rounded to make the knife comfortable to use with a pinch grip.

The finish on my Elmax blades are not as smooth as on other steels, because of its wear resistance. It has a 400 grit drawn finish.

Steel: Elmax

Elmax is a powder metallurgy stainless steel created by Bohler-Uddenholm. It is corrosive resistant due to its high Chromium percentage. It also has excellent edge holding capabilities. It is a fairly easy steel to sharpen and it becomes razor sharp due to the powder metallurgy process and the limited impurities.

Heat treatment: The blade has been differentially heat treated inhouse in a PID controlled furnace at 1100°C and quenched between thick aluminium plates. This is followed by freezing the blade at -79°C for an hour. Finally it is tempered in a PID controlled oven to reach the final hardness.

Hardness: 61 HRC

Height at heel: 59.0mm

Cutting edge length: 232mm

Thickness at

  • Spine at bolster: 2.3mm

  • Spine halfway: 2.1mm

  • 1 cm from the tip: 0.8mm

Handle

Material: Arizona Ironwood.
This is one of the hardest woods in the world. It is very durable and one of the most valued woods for knife handles.

Bolster and spacers: Stainless 303 bolster pinned to the blade with 303 pins, G10 and stainless spacers. Stainless 6mm 304 handle pin.
Treatment: The handle is sealed with Danish Oil

The knife is all handmade in my workshop in Copenhagen. I make two to three knives a week, each one is custom fitted. While they follow the same recipe they are all slightly different.
