About the Stainless Steel Knives that I make by Gene Martin

The Bushwhacker

The Bushwhacker

I grind ATS 34 and 154 CM stainless steels. I find these two steels to be outstanding performers, providing both ductility and excellent edge retention. Both are highly corrosion resistant and provide high performance under adverse environmental conditions.

Most of my stainless blades are created with a hand rubbed satin finish. I also offer a bead blasted finish or acid etched finish. I prefer a darker or non reflective finish on boot and tactical knives.

My stainless steel knives normally feature a full tang. The smaller models may feature bolsters whereas the larger styles may feature bolsters both front and rear.

I typically use 5/32 or 3/16 stock for my stainless steel blades. Bolsters are 303, 304, or 416 stainless steel, unless I use brass. I do not intend to use brass after my current supply of brass is exhausted. I finally realized that my strong dislike for polishing brass stems from 3 years in the Marine Corps. However, brass will be available upon request.
