I got the five blades rough ground and my maker's mark stamped into the ricasso.  Here's what I  use as anti-scale while  H/T'ing:   I H/T my damascus @ 1475:       As quenched in Park's 50:     Be sure to check each blade with a file for hardness.  If the file  bites at all, it's not hard enough.       The blades are in the tempering oven now.  I temper my hunters @ 400 degrees for two 2 hour sessions.
