Very nice work! I've seen a lot of knives made with 416 SS bolsters. You used 304 SS. Is there a difference and do you prefer one over the other?

304 is what I have available. 416 is nice to work with because it is magnetic and can therefore be held down on a surface grinder with a magnetic chuck. It is also easier to work. Unfortunately it is not freely available where I live.
