Hi guys, my first post on instrucables. I've made a bushcraft knife out of RWL34 stainless steel. This so that it can be used for canoeing on salt water. RWL34 is a high carbon(so good edge retention) powder steel from Sweden. I heat treat this by heating it up to 1050 degrees Celsius in a stainless steel envelope. Once the kiln is back on temperature I leave it there for 12 minutes. When I take the knife out of the oven I clamp it between two steel plates for cooling. Tempering is 2X 2 hours at 200 degrees c.

Please ask if you have anymore questions. I'l try to answer them!

belt Sander is a locally build vsm grinder. haven't seen any other one for sale yet. the grinding jig has it's own YouTube video: google how to make an adjustable knife grinding jig for the full explanation. the eyelets jig comes from knife kits.com . hope this helps answering your questions!
<p>That is wonderful! It looks like a custom knife maker built it. It's awesome that you made it yourself!</p>
<p>Haha i am a custom knife maker on a hobby basis i suppose? But thank you for your comment</p>
<p>Awesome project and knife CG and thank's for passing this on </p>
All right. I made the comment before watching the video. As I watched I realized you were not just some random guy with a dremel, lol.
<p>Haha, but the dremel is important XD!</p>
