  1. Kalevra, I live in Vancouver and was wondering if I could drop by and take a look. -Mark
  2. I too was worried about the health effects of ceramics...that's why I went with this http://cgi.ebay.com/SAFE-Non-Ceramic-Fiber-Blanket-1-8-dens-SW607-HT_W0QQitemZ140328938749QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item20ac41acfd&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262 I coated it and have no regrets whatsoever. -Mark
  3. I think this is still a good address. njsteelbaron@gmail.com -Mark
  4. Steve, that's just the way some Shivas look. His hamons are real, just looks like this one's been polished a bit. -Mark
  5. I've dealt with HiTemp before...good outfit. They even let you just drop by and purchase from they're front office! -Mark
  6. Brass rod test. http://www.britishblades.com/forums/showthread.php?p=126853 -Mark
  7. If it's Chinese stainless, it's probably something similar to 420. If you don't have a heat treating oven, don't even bother with it....you will not be able to come close to the time/temp/soak processes to change it from what it is to something different and usable. You can, however, use it to practice grinding, if it's soft enough. -Mark
  8. Okay, I'm gonna hijack this for a minute...... I'd like to say it's an absolute pleasure to have Mr. Maringer join in. Tom, you are one of the greats. I grew up drooling over your work, and, if you're involved in knifemaking once again, I cannot wait to see what you might be up to! Okay, awestruck-baby-mode ending......we now return to your regularly scheduled forum.... -Mark
