  6. Sanmai cracking

    I had same problems with Japanese triple layer steel-core layer from Hitachi white paper steel (via Dictum store) Outer layer of not hardenable very low carbon steel.... I quenched the first in brine edge first,it cracked in the middle of the core steel running the length of the blade. Next blade quenched from non magnetic to preheated canola edge first,same problem... The third blade it was the very same in all (grinds-shape all the same with previous) This third time i quenched the blade from non magnetic to brine spine first....and success!!! No warp no delam no cracks in the middle of the core steel!And crazy hard ! That method worked for me!
  7. Oil or water? - UHB20C & UHB15LM steel

    UHB20C is a Bohler-Uddeholm version of the AISI 1095,but cleaner alloy,which is an obvious positive! I water quenched my UHB20 blades and had pretty good results with hamon also... In lamination-san mai constructions i think its much safer the oil quench...especially if all are steels I've water quenched blades with uhb20c as core and wrought iron from a wagon tire and came pretty good,but with patterned welded blades and other steel better go to oil... Hope this helps
