    Yeah thats why I don't want to use the angle grinder it could cause a lot of problems, the wiggles and hammer marks are not that bad, I just want a faster way to sand it.

    So I had an idea, that would maybe speed up the process of finishing this. Could I use a hand held wood sander to get rid of all the wiggles and shallow hammer marks in the blade? It would take some time but I think it might work. Good or bad idea?

    Question about files&Plunge lines

    So lets say you have the plunge line on your knife perfect 90 degree right angle, Would that crack in the heat treat? If a perfect plunge line does not cause cracking, is it necessary to round the corners of the file you use to make the bevels on your knives? Get what im saying??

    I forged out the blade for the Higonakami folder this evening. Lots of sanding to be done.

    Since I’m going to use O-1 for my KITH blade, I should probably know how to Heat treat it, also since I’m doing full stock removal the metal won’t be heated. So can I just heat it to non magnetic and quench??

    Decisions, decisions Hmmm

    For KITH? You should finish the Damascus folder. That’s just my opinion though.

    Where can you get 16 gauge copper? I measured wrong and the copper I have is too thin.
