Yes, it can be heat treated....and yes its a great hobby. I quit buying knives 50 years ago and have made my own ever since...that way I get EXACTLY what I need or want.George, is stainless steel heat treated like other steel is or is it different?
Knife making is a great hobby. Some technical some artistic and hopefully something that will last a long time that you can be proud of.
I should have known that a man who embraces overkill would have a stemwinder of a knife.:smile1:I make all my own knives...this is a fillet knife I made a good number of years ago. 440C stainless steel Cryogenically treated for superior edge retention, 8 inch blade, burnt cork handle and sheath. Total cost to build the knife was 35 dollars in materials plus my time. It cuts like a hot knife through butter and holds an edge for a long time. View attachment 315570
That uses same steel as the high-end Wustohf knives. Also same blade shape and length. I would bet you really like it! I would say you got a good one at a good price. Have to let us know how you like it.Purchased this a few days ago,feels good to the hand.Going next week will update on how it does.I too am a member of "filet knives anonymous" and have way too many filet knives.:cool1:https://www.amazon.com/Serious-Catc...+knife&qid=1601480300&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-2
