tsterling Posted November 28, 2005 Share Posted November 28, 2005 I want to make a "Mountain Man" folder - you know the ones, antler handle with an external spring. I have Gene Chapman's book of instructions, but he doesn't mention how to heat treat the spring. Should I harden and draw at 425 degrees F like a knife blade, or what? Also, I have 1095, 1075/1080, welded cable, and mild stel available - which would work best for the spring? Thanks in advance.
