New filet knife from Crashblades
« on: May 22, 2018, 12:04:02 PM »
Dave raised the bar here.  7 inch blade of ATS 34 steel.  Razor sharp.  Bocote wood handle.   I love it.
Hoping it won't rain this weekend,  so I can go fishing and try it out.

I love these knives.

I don't know how he does it, but the polish on the blade is something else.  Only down side, is that pictures are hard to take.   lol

I cheat.  After hand sanding, I use a 2HP buffer turning at 3450 RPM.  The trick is to not burn the blade.

Lucky me.  Two more of those Crashblades filet specials coming Friday.  Dave's signature blue jean micarta handles.  I can't wait.

My son gave one of these to his brother in law, and kept the other.  The other day,  between the two lads,   they cleaned 100 pounds of Sea Trout and Kingfish.  The knives were said to have performed perfectly,  and were still sharp.
