Joe Kiss sent us a photo of his last project this week.
The blade is from Finnish brand Brisa, the Trapper 95 mm in ELMAX stainless steel.
ELMAX is a powder metallurgy stainless steel created by Bohler-Uddenholm. It is corrosive resistant due to its high Chromium percentage. It also has excellent edge holding capabilities. It is a fairly easy steel to sharpen and it becomes razor sharp due to the powder metallurgy process and the limited impurities.
The handle scales are in Desert Ironwood with stainless steel corby bolts and lanyard tube. The finish is with super glue to seal the wood.
Excellent work, Joe!
