Didn't mean to be taken seriously, Hayshaker...I was just funnin' ya.

The first emoji was SUPPOSED to be a puking-smiley (following my off-hand guestimate of $2k).  The second one was SUPPOSED to be a rolling-on-floor-laughing smiley.

Howdy, hayshaker,

There's an outfit, Force Technology, that's tailor-made for your purpose.  They can tell you the exact chemical makeup of your steel, and maybe even the Rockwell hardness, if you just send them your knife, along with maybe a couple thousand dollars.   http://bladesandbushlore.com/Smileys/krystl-white/puke.gif

...One little problem...they only do destructive testing.  But at least you'd be sure of the steel that your knife USED to be made of.  http://bladesandbushlore.com/Smileys/krystl-white/rofl.gif

I have watched my boss grill up and eat chicken bloody red in the middle. It must a Australian back country thing. I could go on and on about the guy, one tough old bastard. If his family would let him get away with it he would live at his place in the nm high desert middle of nowhere,  eating beans and drinking Coors beer.

That's correct, Unk.....there is no trychinosis in any of the government inspected hogs produced in the U.S.A. today.  Cooking pork roasts or chops to a slightly 'pink' degree of doneness is perfectly safe these days......juicier and better tasting, too. :drool:

Don't care what they say, I will only eat it well done.
Your call of course, but if safety is your sole concern, here is the scoop from the big pigs in the room.....The National Pork Producers Council & the FDA. ;D

I know, I know. My sister makes these incredible Sunday dinners, she works on them all day, and she loves making medium rare pork roast. Everyone loves it, except me and my dad. I personally like beef medium well, but enjoy medium rare prime rib however that is it. Burger meat and pork have to be well done for me.
I understand......I'm the same way with poultry.   Red chicken or turkey 'bout makes me  :puke:!
