    This is going to be a ‘beater blade’ of mine, checking a two things:
    (1) My heat-treat and tempering for O1
    (2) My edge cutting and retention. I’ll Be using my 2x72 grinder running in reverse to sharpen it with progressive grits at about 30-50% power (noticed in this range the blade does not heat up as much, though it still gets dunked regardless).

    Pic looks a little deceiving at this angle, blade is approx 2” (50.8mm) wide at its widest and the cutting edge is 4 & 3/4” (120.6mm). File work is a random pattern and close up has been posted in the appropriate forum section.

    Thanks for looking :beer:

    Great cleaver. Gotta love a cleaver, they look so mean. Love the logo, do you etch it yourself? I'm guessing you aren't using the old battery and Q-tip method : )

    Good looking design. I like the way you have forward mass for chopping.

    @ToddR Thank you and I am using the Silhouette Cameo 3 to make vinyl stencils and etching with a Personalizer Plus. That one was full power on Etch! I think Etch on that machine is DC and Mark is AC. Anyway it’s not without some learning curve, and in no way perfect, still need to play around with the set up to dial it in. On the Camp knife I was able to get the stencil down to 0.5” square...I haven’t gone smaller yet..yet :D

    @dancom Thanks! Bevel width is actually equal front to back, again it’s the angle of the pic lol, it makes it look 4” wide when it’s only 2” haha. Mind you it has sparked creative ideas for a larger version!
