Why Did I use S30V?
It is American Made Steel for One Thing.
CPM S30V is a martensitic powder made stainless steel which was developed by Dick Barber of Crucible Materials Corporation in collaboration with knifemaker Chris Reeve as a knifemaking steel due to its wear and corrosion resistance.
Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides.
In addition, vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined grain which further contributes to the sharpness and toughness of its edge.
Its composition is as follows: Carbon 1.45%, Chromium 14.00%, Vanadium 4.00%, Molybdenum 2.00%.
Knifemakers prefer using CPM S30V because its composition makes it easy to consistently heat treat as well as easier to grind although the carbides wear down the grinder belts.
According to Custom Knifemakers, knife users prefer S30V because it provides a strong blade with a maintainable edge due to the Vanadium carbides.
Why did I use Stainless Steel Handles?

Who is Icon Of Sin?
Icon of Sin is the thirtieth and final map of Doom II. It was designed by Sandy Petersen and uses the music track "Opening To Hell". Doom II was released in 1994 and won the Origins Award for Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Computer Game of 1994. Doom II: Hell on Earth was one of the first released first-person shooter video games.
In the computer game Doom II, a garbled message played at the start of Map 30, spoken by the "Icon of Sin", can be played backwards to hear "To win the game, you must kill me, John Romero." Romero was a programmer for the game; he put the backwards message (with distortions) in to get back at the artists who put the image of his head on the final level. The player can use the no-clip cheat to enter the brain of the Icon of Sin to see Romero’s head impaled on a stake. Shooting the head allows you to win the level, although the head emits a ghastly cry. (Normally the player is expected to shoot rockets at the exposed brain of Baphomet, killing Romero via splash damage.)
The Icon of Sin (also called Baphomet) is the final boss of Doom 2 and both chapters of Final Doom. Its image appears in the original Doom on numerous pieces of stone tablets, although it is never an enemy in the game. The Icon of Sin takes its name from the final level of the game, in which it is fought.
The Icon of Sin itself is a large demonic goat-like head set in a wall. This demon, the largest in the Doom series, continuously projects skull-faced cubes from its exposed brain. Upon landing, these cubes spawn monsters to attack the player. It cannot summon Cyberdemons, Spider Masterminds, or zombies. If a cube lands on the player, he or she will be immediately telefragged, even with an invulnerability powerup or the God Mode cheat. In normal play, the player can only defeat the Icon by shooting rockets into its exposed brain. Its size is further hinted at in part of the Doom II epilogue: "The monster shrivels up and dies, its thrashing limbs devastating untold miles of Hell’s surface.
"The Icon itself is not a true monster, but merely a static wall texture. Using the noclip cheat code, one can enter The Icon of Sin and see the "brain". Inside, there is a sprite of lead game designer John Romero’s head impaled on a spike. It is within the splash damage radius of the rocket launcher, and damaging the head is what kills The Icon of Sin. It is not the head however that spawns the monster cubes. These are created by an invisible monster placed right behind the Icon’s brain. It sends the cubes to one of about 10 spawn spots placed on the map. If no spawn spots are placed on a custom map, the Icon of Sin cannot spawn monsters. The arcane chant the Icon of Sin speaks is actually John Romero speaking "To win the game, you must kill me, John Romero!", distorted and reversed.
In Doom II, The Icon of Sin may have been the mastermind behind Hell’s invasion of Earth (in a way similar to the Spider Mastermind’s involvement in the first game), and it certainly was the Icon of Sin that was bringing forth all the monsters. In the Plutonia chapter of Final Doom it serves as Hell’s gatekeeper. In the Evilution chapter of Final Doom, it is simply referred to as the "demon-spitter". Whether or not this means that this demon is the devil is never explained or hinted at. Its Baphomet moniker is derived from a remark made in the Final Doom manual - that "the Spider Mastermind and Baphomet no longer seemed to threaten". Although not explicity stated, this reference to ’Baphomet’ is generally accepted as being Doom II’s Icon of Sin; certainly, the monster’s head resembles that of the demon Baphomet.
The Icon of Sin does not appear in the Doom novels, as the novels replaced the idea of demons from Hell with a genetically altered alien invasion.
