This is my first knife in Uddeholm Vanadis 4 Extra Superclean. 1.4%C, 4.7%Cr, 3.5%Mo, 4.7%V. It was a learning experience. Forging it was brutal. Grinding was brutal. HT and cryo were done elsewhere because I lack the tools for high alloy steel. Normally I hand polish my knives but in this case that was not an option. I should have done everything before HT but didn’t so I learned something. Still, the machine finish looks decent enough. The handle is stabilized fossil bone and buffalo horn. It has a truly wicked edge.
