Limited Time TSP Genesis Sale

TSP “Val” Genesis

I have had several request for a run of TSP Val Genesis. The last time we ran them it was a huge success. These are only going to be available for a limited time, and probably won’t be available again for quite a while.  This run is going to have the “Val” logo in place of the MT Knives logo in the photo (the MTK logo will be on the back side) Unless there is a landslide of orders They should ship in 2-3 weeks if not sooner.  

The Deadline for ordering will be Friday May 26th by Midnight.

Ponder CTS™-XHP versus other steels. Is the quality in the steel?

CTS™-XHP VS EVERYONE ELSE! (By the data!)

Welcome back. In some ways, this is the hardest of the three posts about CTS™-XHP. In others… easy day. What I wanted to look at here was just a side by side comparison of a few different types of steels and then draw a conclusion or two. Basically, it’s a versus post! Who has the best stats? Let’s find out.

MTKnives is a little… different.

This post is going to approach this subject a little differently than most knife makers approach the subject. A lot of people in this industry like to take one knife and compare it to another using the rope-cut method. There are others but this one is pretty ubiquitous. Basically, you take […]

CTS™-XHP: Is this super steel the best for knives? I think so.

 

Let’s continue our discovery of CTS™-XHP. Possibly the best knife steel ever.

CTS™-XHP is one of the most fantastic steels on the market. I don’t just say that because I use it. I say that because it is possibly the best. It is in high demand. The thought that went into the formula is dumbfounding. The quality of the manufacturing is top notch. And most importantly the performance of the steel is unbelievable. I have a hard time saying something is the best ever, but this steel might just be the best knife steel ever. Let’s keep describing it. Hope you enjoy!

Carpenter’s XHP is Air Hardening:

Recall the last post when we talked about how CTS™-XHP was formed using powder metallurgy? Ok. So […]

No Longer Selling Sharpening Supplies

 I am no longer going to stock sharpening supplies.

I want as many people to be able to keep their knives sharp as possible! And to save their money so they can spend it on a nice knife 🙂 So I am going to provide you with the links to the products I recommend as well as cheaper alternatives. I believe in buy once cry once. So it isn’t really a recommendation, but I understand some people just prefer to go with the cheapest route available. These links are Amazon Affiliate links and I will get a small percentage of the sale cost. However, it doesn’t cost you any more than it would if you bought straight from Amazon.

I may be […]

CTS™-XHP: What is Carpenter’s XHP steel? In a word, Excellent.

 Is CTS™-XHP the best steel? I think so.

CTS™-XHP steel at this time is my go to steel for Extra High-Performance knives. Frankly, I think it is incredibly hard to beat in performance. Carpenter’s XHP outperforms pretty much everything out there. It is a premium steel and it is coveted by knife makers around the world. I have been wanting to write a few articles about this steel for a while now.

 

That time is now. Let’s dive in!

Over the next few articles, I plan on covering the makeup of the steel, some in-depth explorations of the characteristics of the steel, and make some comparisons to other common steels you might encounter.

For this article, […]

Stakeholder of the Month

 

Stakeholder of the Month

 

I thought it would be fun to feature a Stakeholder of the Month so you and I could hear from the people who help make it MT Knives Great! It is also encouraging for me  to hear from them in their own words why they decided to support MT Knives. So Here is the first one.

I’m John from North Dakota and I carry a custom knife made by Patrick all day, every day. My part time job is in the dental field and the rest of my time is spent as a homesteader, husband and father of 4 daughters […]

When Life Gives You Lemons

Lemons

Lemons are good but Lemonade is better! Sometimes when making knives you make mistakes, some can be fixed and others cannot. I have always said integrity is the most important quality of a knife maker, in fact I think integrity is the most important quality of any person.  Where am I going with this? Well with over 1,000 Genesis produced it was bound to happened, the last Genesis I got in didn’t pass my rigid standard of quality. The laser cutting left some deep marks that will not come out without having to remove too much steel! Fortunately the knives are not worthless, they just are not up to my standards. In […]

I had a wonderful time in CO, beautiful setting and awesome weather! I always enjoy meeting new friends. This was my first sharpening class put on by myself and it was a great learning experience for everyone involved. People say you learn more teaching than just doing, and I would have to agree.  I put together a short highlight video for you, please take a minute to watch it. If you would like to attend or host a class like this in your area be sure and contact me.
