I like it, but find the show seems to slight the whole heat treating process. As I do stock removal I have more interest in HT than in forging.

 

Thanks

I wondered if the bullet was a full metal jacket or a hollow point. I also wondered how "they" set up the pistol to fire so exactly, to actually impact a sword edge. Some fine measuring there. Anyway, sorry you couldn't keep that blade, Matt, it would be famous as the first katana shown on the show.

They had a bench rest with a sharpshooter. And tested on another sword untill they had it down and yes they were copper jacketed rounds

It's very curious, all the cracks that keep appearing in the work three shows in. It feels like it has to be a combination of forges too hot (possibly with no controls?), quenching material too cold and not enough time to temper back in the 3 initial hours. That time limit has got to be a good challenge. It is cool to see some of the problem solving that is required on the fly in the show.
