Anyone have any experience making knives out of it, or using knives made from it that they would like to share?

probably not many out there. most W1 you find is drill bit stock. most folks are probably using 1095 instead.

I have a custom Bowie in W2. It has been spectacular. A friend and I cut down a tree about 8” ib diameter and then a bunch of limbs from 4” down. I took several hours. When we finished, it would still scrape shave arm hair.
