Here is a lovely petty that will make a great addition to anyone’s knife roll or block. It is made from 52100 steel by ABS Journeyman Bladesmith Steve Grosvenor. He works in his forge located in South Dakota and we are really pleased to be representing him here at CKTG.
52100 is a steel developed to make roller bearings, an application requiring steel that is perfectly homogenous and fine-grained. For this reason, 52100 is made with a lot of care, usually using a vacuum or protective gas melting methods. It is a high carbon, chromium steel containing low alloy steel that exhibits excellent strength and fatigue properties. It is a very highly regarded alloy which has the nickname "the Cadillac of steels" in the roller industry. 52100 also makes an excellent knife blade as a mono steel construction or it can be san-mai welded with other steels. Steve uses a stock removal method to form this blade and hardens the steel to 61 HRC.
The taller than usual profile affords greater clearance for on board work while keeping the handle further away from the item when cutting in hand.
