Guys, I've run into a horrible problem. Currently I am working on the biggest commission of my life, and this blade keeps twisting along it's axis no matter how many times I re-heat and hammer it down flat. So, I've created this 40cm long blade, with 20cm long tang, consisting of 3 bars folded and twisted steel - as pr. my usual blades. Currently I am trying to normalize the blade before moving forward with grinding the ricasso and edge onto it - however - the blade keeps twisting along it's axis every time I re-heat and hang it by the tang from the ceiling to cool
