violins88 Posted November 14, 2011 Report Share Posted November 14, 2011 I have some CPM-10V steel. Pretty expensive in small quantities. It is 3mm thick. I think it might be very useful to bowmakers. Are there bowmakers here who can tell me the dimensions of a bowmakers knife that is 3mm thick? I have enough for perhaps 4 to 6 knives. But if it turns out to be useful, I can try to find more. The plane blade I made and had cryo hardened turned out to be too hard to be useful, and perhaps too grainy (a function of the high temp. value). It could not be sharpened adequately for violin makers. But if heat treated to a lower hardness, I am hopeful about it. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
