Bolt Knife by Logan Pearce by Logan-Pearce Bolt Knife by Logan Pearce by Logan-Pearce
Blade Material: Bolt
OAL: 9"
Sheath: Black leather sheath
Price: $35
Available Here: [link]

Other Remnants:



Couldn't really say much about the horseshoe knife. It came out like I wanted and there isn't a whole lot I can really say that makes them any more awesome than being out of a horse shoe.

This knife though, is different than the other bolts. I wasn't paying a whole lot of attention when I was grabbing the bolts up to forge them. It was evident while/after forging that I had some bolts that had a higher thread count than my normal ones. So the jagged edges on the back of the clipped point, isn't nearly as visible or defined. I'm not really happy with that, but it's still the same I suppose.

From now on, I'm going to make sure I have a low thread count bolt and once I get professionalizedical photos of all my Remnants, it should be my final looking product.

Stupid question: do bolts make for good knifes, or do they tend to be quite brittle under torque?

They can be made to cut, but their edge won't last as long as knifemaking steels such as 5160, 1080, etc. Unless you know which bolt comes from which manufacturer and what type of steel they use to make that bolt, then you don't know how to heat treat it, just like any other steel. Getting a bolt(or any unknown steel) and blindly hardening and tempering will lead to disappointment.

In the end it just depends on the steel and if you can heat treat that steel.

how long does it take you to make these knives? do you own your own forge/equipment?

Hours and hours. Yes, I have my own knife business. I can't get away with not having the equipment to forge and make a complete knife.
