  7. Kevin The papers i have say to use the lower end of the range for W2 for higher carbon content and move the temp up with the lower carbon. Thanks Bob

  12. Hi folks i have not posted in a while but finaly got around to using some of Don Hanson's W2. Thanks to Jeff Helmes for drawing it down to usable size from 1 3/4" round with his power hammer. This is the first W2 hamon i have tried since building my oven and using houghton K. I gave the blade a long soak at 1425f quenched in than tempered twice at 450f. The quench k seems to work great for hamons and no dredded tink. Now to the knife the blade is 5 1/2" to the guard and 1 1/4 wide with an o.a.l. of 10 5/8" W2 with a 416 s.s. guard and stabilized redwood burl handle. Cheers Bob

  14. I am not sure of the actual process but when i had steel tested it came back with all the alloys including trace elenemts. Check with the metalurgy dept. at your u. and they should be able to tell and show you what you need to know. Bob
