I like the use of tool steel for durability. I wonder how difficult it is to sharpen though :unsure:.

What foc was used?

I think this would penetrate like a .416 if it was sitting on some grizzly sticks with a brass insert.

Thanks for the video!

This is A2 steel...it is very hard and very resistant to impact, but not too difficult to sharpen. I really like the sharpeners made by StaySharpGuide. They keep the perfect bevel. I have 20% FOC with a 125 gr head and this was a 150, so it would be a bit greater than that.

@Bowhuntr64 ive tried hundreds of dollars of sharpeners and realized I’m terrible with them. Like giving a dremel to a do-it-yourself gunsmith. What I found was a great four sided leather strop bat with jewelers rouge in three different grit was the ticket. Follow the angle and things get razor sharp. Razor sharp. It does take longer in front of the TV or with it wedged in a vise, but it is so easy a chimp can use one. I think it was $30.

this is what i use to sharpen broadheads. I might remove a burr with a diamond stone first, but I get to the strop ASAP to avoid ruining a bevel.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
