jake cleland Posted December 3, 2008 Share Posted December 3, 2008 what would be the fastest non-commercial oil quenchant? i'm looking for something fast enough to get a hamon on 1086M/1095/W2. i've only got good results from these steels in water, but i want something that doesn't produce sori, and reduces the risk of cracking, so i can do seaxes and straight double edged pieces with hamons. i'd love to get some parks 50 or equivalent but have had no luck finding any in this country. are there any recipies for speeding up an oil quench?
