    You know, Michael, the only one that would know whether this would work for you is you. And since the sword is in Idaho, and you're in Sydney, it'll be a bit difficult to get the two of you...

    Going back to Oct of last year, when I decided to do the "Sale", I felt that I probably wouldn't make it physically to the end of the year, if I didn't manage to pay off the machine contract within...

    I think your scabbard just needs to be dyed.........

    As agreed {more than once I believe}, it'll ship with the 1403. I would love to ship it alone, but I'm not overly loaded with assets right now {meaning money to ship in this case}.

    Hi Till

    Actually, I think a worse thing happened. I believe, now, that I was corresponding with two of you over the same sword. And it shipped out to the other party. I had quite an "awareness"...

    Hi Roy

    Yeah, late last year I was cruising for a crash landing. Probably would have not only been out of business before the end of the year, but very likely had another, possibly nastier stroke....

    I have the Paypal records, it just takes time to look them up, and I haven't taken the time. I need to "bury the "Sale"', as unfair as that probably sounds now.......

    Hi John

    That's one I'd really like to finish this year, but first, I need to get these 1403s done or at least at the point where I'm waiting for someone else. That's why I said I'll be back...

    Stumble around to look at things this morning, and see a bit of a problem......

    Mr. Kunev, I don't recall things, but checking "in the corner" there's a 1503 blade that is probably yours, and I...

    You have scabbards on the orders with your two pieces? I'm afraid I have a bit of an issue here. Its taking a bit longer to have scabbards made than I'd counted on, now that we're approaching the...

    The thing is that cryo has become "politicized". Meaning that a fight can erupt at a moment's notice, and that opinions seem to predominate over actual facts......

    8660.........

    Probably ought to add that to the list of reasonably good sword blade steels. I've never played with this one, but "back in the day" had a reasonable acquaintanceship with 8620. Very...

    Once upon a time I was a big time believer in this. But, in the last couple of years, the largest manufacturer of swords in the US has an official lid on their choice of steel. Its "come out" the...

    At times you can get 6150 at Admiral steel. When they have it, they have it in plate or sheet. Last time I checked {a few months ago}, I could have gotten it in 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, and/ or 3/8...

    Hi George

    Probably not going to do anything based on the historical messers anytime soon. May I suggest Albion? Very good stuff there, I had the opportunity to handle the bare blades a few years...

    Chemically speaking, Carpenter L6 and 4340M are very similar. Main difference being the carbon level difference..

    You can get 4340M into the mid-50's rc, after tempering. But in my opinion it...

    You can ask CF. He's been asked about 1403s, he's been asked if he can get any that get cancelled. And I'm not going to make any more of these. Not unless my shoulder comes back 100%.

    Hi Justin

    Got tangled up with the grinder about five times today. So, earlier I was online a few minutes to take a break and let the adrenaline rush calm down a bit. Hand's fine, glove's...

    I'd add 6150 to this list.......has a little less carbon than you mention, but gets more than hard enough, and the bit of V it has helps with the grain refinement.........
