Not meant for anyone in particular, but.... is this a dick measuring contest over. 001? Who'd a thunk it?
Gotcha. That's a better explanation. The way it was stated read like: 'Unless you're running a CNC then your tolerance is not tight'. This is just not true.
On profile, yeah my knives my won't hold .001 from one blade to the next. I profile on my grinder except for flats. No two parts on my knives can be interchanged with other knives. Granted I've done it on accident and with flippers the blades can be interchanged but lockface will not be perfect.
But for my business model I don't really want my knives to be exactly the same profile. This is something that I would rather not have. Each piece is made independent and built exactly for that specific knife by hand. Every part is made for each knife except for the 2-56 screws ( I don't produce those in house, but they are re-machined for concentricity of the head tot he threads).
Anyways I didn't want to jump into the discussion. But I had to state that manual machines can machine some very complex parts to very tight tolerances. Sounds like we are on the same page.
Some good info here.. and quite frankly makes me want a RJ Martin and Rexford knives even more. RJ & Todd are your order books open by any chance?
