  1. It is a beautiful knife! I can suggest to quench in hot oil even blades forged of steels dedicated to be hardened in water. With thin cross sections (and knives or swords are ratehr thin) hot oil will do the job I worked it out by many cracks And that burl is quite alike black locust burl. Enclosed my hunter handle with horribly 'misslined' pins ;P

Tors, magic circles of rocks like Marry Maidens, and Tintagel of course. ... And from the other side the Dartmoor National Park - lovely place to have long walks It was a great stage of my life.
