Rob Thomas Posted January 15, 2015 Share Posted January 15, 2015 Properly heat treated this steel is great! It cuts very well. It has good contrast and is easy to etch. I know many knife makers who prefer to work with this steel! This is how we heat treat our stainless steel Damascus when the layers are AEB-L and 301. HEAT TREATING: Preheat furnace to Austenizing temperature Place blade in furnace Allow furnace to cycle back to Austenizing temperature Soak for 15 minutes Quench in oil Temper 2 times for 1 hour each time Quench in liquid nitrogen for 4 hours and re-temper 1 time HEAT TREATING TEMPERATURE MATERIAL AUSTENIZING TEMPER Stainless 1925F 350F Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
