  1. Those are pretty cool! Good Job
  2. I have a client that is a senior materials research analyst and that has been the subject for several appointments. This method of treating materials is still in it’s infancy. We are not sure exactly what changes. Yes, cold treating carbon steel helps it for the characteristics of a knife. I think that we will find that the cold treatments are going to be as varied as heat treating methods. As to when and how, that is proprietary. What is really cool is cold application of polymers and abrasives. I know that it is not much of an answer but that is the best of my knowledge.
  3. Ariel: I really like your san mai stuff. It looks like the steel has oozed like wet paint. How are you etching your maker mark? Thanks, Chuck

  15. Ahhh, Nicotine... I have never looked that up. Britannaca says: It has a unique biphasic effect: Inhaled in short puffs it is a stimulant, but when inhaled slowly and deeply it can be a tranquilizer. Or Columbia University Press says: A person who smokes inhales approximately 3 mg from one cigarette. This amount increases the heart rate, constricts the blood vessels, and acts on the central nervous system, imparting a feeling of alertness and well-being. Well it explains why I use it. I just need some of Chuck's to make those whoop ass blades!
  16. Way cool Alan... I will stand back and watch. Ray might have a "huge fear of warping", I just have fear..... I would have to take Ritalin to get through a piece like that!
