Heat treating N690

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m very new to Knife making. I have a heat treating oven and recently bought N690 stainless too make same knifes. What is the best way to heat treat N690? Does anyone have experience with this steel?

I have never used it, but it seem similar to ATS-34, CPM154, and VG10.  You will need a heat treat oven.  Here's the instructions I found, you'll want to convert the temperatures to C before you try it!
