The Science and Making of CPM 154 Powder Sintered Knives with David Rydbom
Rad video from In The Making profiling David Rydbom aka kingdomarmory and his custom, world-class handmade knives:
Doc North pays David Rydbom of Kingdom Armory to see his home shop where he makes eye-catching collectible knives. At the heart of the Unagi knife is a sintered alloy. Dr. North takes you on a deep dive into the science of sintering to understand how these high-performance materials give a balance of hardness and toughness. And see how Dave creates these knives with a modest shop.
