  2. OK, Alan has found an exception to the rule. Or more precisely, the rule is "Don't use 'temper colors' to judge temperature or effectiveness for tempering martensite." No martensite here, so you're safe.

  3. Just normalize as usual, then do what Jerrod says not to and use temper colors. Shine it up a little and run the colors past blue into gray until they disappear. You're not aiming at a color that corresponds to a hardness, you're just trying to overtemper it, one instance where the colors are just the sort of rough estimate that's needed. You can do it in the forge and muffle if you want, it's not that important. You want it hot, but not hot enough to glow.
