yes charred,

My Friend gave me a big plane of steel from a cotton gin factory. I worked with D2 before. so from ıts mechanical properties and spark test ı guess the steel could be D2. I drowed the outher line and grind the blade. than punch the points for pins. drill them. fit some cable copper for the pins. put the blade and the handle materials together and glue them together. wait for some time. and did the latest things for the edge. so it was in the palm at the end. the others were forged from different materials.....

At the end ıt does not as aesthetic as other blades but it is mine ::)

Hi Dude,

D2 is an air hardening steel. I did not harden it because ıt is original hardness seemed ok for me.

 

 

I knew it was an air-hardening steel, but I'm just trying to get a feel for how everyone hardens their D2. I'm thinking of ordering a batch and wanted to see what the hardening process was like.

understand dude,

ok I didn t forge this blade. so ı didn t harden it. the only ı care was I paid attention not to heat a lot while grinding.
