  8. Μr Jerrod Miller and Mr Wes Detrick,thank you for all the explanation! This forum is really a River of Knowledge!Thank you all.much appreciated!
  9. Thank you Alan After forging did 4 stress releiving cycles from non magnetic to room temperature with my propane forge.. Next with my Eveheat kiln i heat to 1560F/850C hold for 10 min then cool to above 1000f in room air Heat to 1470F/800C hold for 10 min- cool below 1000F in room air Heat to 1380F/750C hold there for 10 min-cool to below 1000f again in air Heat again to 1290F/700C hold there for 10 min-cool to below 1000F in air and last cycle heat to 1200F/650C hold there for 1 hour then cool to room temprerature Grinds like butter with this process After grinding again i heat to 1200F for 1 hour and cool to room temperature That's my heat treating process pretty much for all my blades of all steels.. The same I did for these blades above Water temperature was about 170F/80C and the temperature of the edge was barely at...well maybe 50F above critical That's all my info I will put some handles on these blades and I will do some cutting tests.If they pass the tests i will do a bending test at a vise..Next I will break them to see the grain size...I will post a video for all of you to discuss Thank you all for all of these years of Knowledge...I've learned soooo much just reading you all you guys!
