    knife hardness

    Kreg, Matthew Parkinson of Dragons Breath Forge sells an 8 piece comparative hardness test chisel set 50HRC to 64HRC. They go up 2 points of hardness for each one. Like the rest of these guys have said it is more than just a number. Hardness will need to be different for different kinds of knives. Their purposes, grinds. Whether you want an easier to sharpen knife or one that will hold an edge longer. I want to make 2 knives just alike and temper one softer and one harder and see the difference. thanks everyone for the info, Doug Jn. 3:16

    knife hardness

    What is the good of having a way to check hardness if you don't know about how hard you want blades? Thanks, Doug

    knife hardness

    thanks vern, I do have a way to check hardness. The info I am looking for is what kind of knives would be 57 and what kind would be 62 and in between. Just general info. I guess a kitchen knife would be high and a chopper on the lower end. There is a lot of difference in a 57 and 62. Would a machete be lower than 57? That is the kind of stuff I am looking for. Thanks, Doug

    Spring steel won't skate a file

    If you put a sand tray in a toaster oven for tempering do you bury the blade, lay it on the sand, or stick it edge down in the sand? Thanks, Doug John 3:16
