  1. I am a newbe to forging. Up until know I have been using stock rolled/machined steel ( O 1) by stock removal and quenched in used Olive oil. I use a temperature controlled kiln. These are specialty knives for wood carving usually 1/16 to 1/8 inch thick. Now I am teaching myself forging. I have no experienced blacksmiths close that I can learn from. I bought a gas forge and an anvil. Steel is used steel from a flea market. Files, saws, etc. I intend to go on making full size knives. My questions are: what oil do I use for quenching? Is Olive oil OK? If not, automotive oil? B

    Quench warping

    I think everyone knows the phenomenon. I wrote a short rant about it: https://makesg.wordpress.com/2015/08/26/the-painful-truth-about-blade-warping/ Now I'm curious: is it a daily issue for everyone? How much warpage is too much?
