Thread: Anyone here make a knife from a wrench?

    Anyone here make a knife from a wrench?

    I have a few of them in my knife collection and I don't believe I ever found out what kind
    of steel wrenches are made from? I assume they might contain chromium/vanadium/molybdenum
    but you know where 'assume' gets you.

    Itís taken 9 different dogs and 67 long years to make
    me the gentle, patient, mellow man that I am today.

    Vanadium , resulting in a significant increase in the strength of the steel. There are two groups of vanadium containing steel alloy groups. Vanadium high-carbon steel alloys containing 0.15 to 0.25 percent vanadium and high speed tool steels (HSS) with a vanadium content ranges from 1 % to 5 %. For high speed tool steels, a hardness above HRC 60 can be achieved. HSS steel is used in surgical instruments and tools.

    Yay! Clydetz has invented the multi-tool!

    Step aside Mr Leatherman.....

    Enter Clydetz with his Knife and wrench combo!

    Looks WAY cooler than a Leatherman too.

    Where did you get them sir?

    Bruce Evans had made me a couple of knives and I noticed a wrench knife pictured on his website. Wound up sending him 8 different Craftsman wrenches to be made into knives. I liked the idea of adding some knives made from odd-ball stuff to my collection... J. Neilson made me 2 beautiful knives from a horseshoe as well as a railroad spike. I did some picture file hunting and found some pictures of the original 8...

    Een aanmerking: de beste kwaliteit van sleutels (en die hier gebruikte GEDORE zijn top-gereedschappen) word gemaakt van staal 1.2208 = 31CrV3. Deze staal is niet geschikt om messen van te maken, want zelfs met de beste warmtebehandeling word het niet hard genoeg. Sorry.

    A consideration: the best quality of keys (and who used his top-GEDORE tools) is made of steel 1.2208 = 31CrV3. This steel is not suitable for blades of it, because even with the best heat treatment is not hard enough. Sorry.
