Jokke Posted December 2, 2012 Share Posted December 2, 2012 Hi, after working more on the house I used my little forging place for hardening four blades, that where lying around up to over one year. two are forged from M.Balbachs DSC (Damast-super-clean) and will be made into Puukko's, also the small blade from Damascus made by Micha Schick with the sharper point. But especially proud I am of the four bar piece that I bought from "Perry" on the Solingen Knife show this year. It is made from 1.2842 (90MnCrV8)and 75 Ni8, from four twisted bars and forged together by him. I had the luck to buy it from him in a prefinished form, so I forged it a little more and put it into the shape it has now. Since the main steel in all of the blades is 1.2842, I did a three time normalising from around 700° and hardened the blades at 830°C in warm Oil (110°), all four came out straight and fine, another two hours in the oven at 170° smoothened them enough... and today I finished Perry's blade up too 1200 grit and put it into Ferric to reveal its structure: here you are, I'll show the knives again when I have put this one into a kitchen knife and the others into Puukkos: Jokke Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
