SOURCE: What are the main metals consist in a knife's blade?

There are many metals used to assemble a knife, but the main blades are forged from bronze, copper, iron, steel, ceramics, and titanium. If you're buying a new knife I recommend to use titanium made knife, it's very high quality an titanium is the best stainless steel.

SOURCE: What are the main metals consist in a knife's blade?

Steel blades are commonly shaped by forging or stock removal. Forged blades are made by heating a single piece of steel, then shaping the metal while hot using a hammer or press. Stock removal blades are shaped by grinding and removing metal. Forging Flange Manufacturers India Stainless Carbon Alloy Steel Forgings

How should I care for my stainless steel dive knife so it doesnt go rusty?


. Stainless Steel contains high carbon traces for strengthening, they will almost certainly rust. To ensure that you care for your knife you should rinse it well with fresh water after a dive and allow it to dry naturally outside of its sheath, you can also apply some oil to the blade from time to time, and this will preserve your knife for longer.

What is the best steel for a hunting knife?


Right now the best steel as far as stainless steel is S35VN stainless steel. It surpasses the S30V steel. But if you want the best carbon steel, personally I would go with D2 steel. It is such a good steel that it is considered a semi-stainless steel.

But to really help you out, it's not the type of steel that's the most important thing. It is the way the steel is heat tempered and hardened. If it is not properly heat treated and hardened, then the steel is worthless as far as knives go. If the HRC is too high for the type of steel/ stainless steel, then the blade will be brittle and chip or break easier.

If the steel's HRC aka Rockwell hardness is too low, then it will easily bend and will not hold an edge well at all.

Each steel and stainless steel have their own HRC tolerance level Going above or below its HRC tolerance makes for a bad knife blade.

Two CDs stuck in car CD player


most CD players have approx a 3/16'' wide opening that the CD slides into. you will need a strong 4'' long stainless steel pair of tweezers & a small thin blade knife, approx 3'' to remove the top CD before it will eject the second one. using a small LED flashlight, [second person required] shine it inside the CD player opening & you will see the edge of the top CD. [ when light hits the edge of a CD, it reflects like a mirror]. now gently insert the knife [about 1''] @ a slight downward angle & lift up slowly until you see 2 reflecting edges. grab the upper one with the tweezers tightly & carefully pull it out until you can remove it by hand. it may take a few trys to get it out but, here's where you need some patients. ya! my daughter did that to me too. this was the only way to get it out other than taking the whole unit apart. have fun.

I recently dropped my knife with the blade open it fell into some rocks and the blade tip broke on impact.


You can re-shape the tip with a few steps.
Do not use a grinding wheel, it will heat the blade too much, and you will lose the temper of the blade.
First, use a file to take off metal. Start by filing off the 45 degree at the cutting edge caused by the break. After you get the right shape, a whetstone will smooth the edge out, and let you sharpen it. I fixed a Buck 110 folding knife fir my brother a few years ago. It is obviously shorter now, but holds a good edge and works fine.

Chipper Maintenance


Maintenance (excluding the power plant) Your primary maintenance concern with chippers and shredders is their knives. You can re-sharpen chipper knives, whereas you can reverse shredder flail-type knives when dull but you can not re-sharpen them. You must sharpen chipper knives with special sharpening equipment because they are made of high-carbon steel. Maintaining sharp knives can lengthen their life and the life of the machine by keeping power requirements low. An over-dulled or chipped chipper knife will need extensive sharpening, which will remove a large portion of the blade. This obviously will shorten its life. As soon as a blade is slightly dull, you should sharpen it to minimize the amount of blade-material that you remove. All knives need sharpening at the same time to keep them in balance-even if only one is worn or chipped. Also, you must use matched sets to keep the knife the same distance from the anvil for proper chipping and feeding. After removing the knives, clean the area where they are fastened with a wire brush to make sure they will align correctly. Be sure to torque the knife bolts to their proper specifications. You will need to examine the anvil and be sure it maintains a good, square edge. Occasionally, you may need to remove and sharpen it.
