    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

  9. Bluing and Bleach Etch

    I guess you need to use a resist on the edge of the blade when using bleach and bluing to age a blade. I am afraid it will eat the edge away if I don't. What is the best thing to use for a resist to keep it from eating the edge? Thanks, Doug Jn.3:16
