Any advice on peening tangs? This is some high vanadium spring steel and even though I thought I'd kept the tang soft it's harder than woodpecker lips.  I've got a little acetylene torch I could use to heat it up.. thinking I'd wrap the handle in wet rags and try while it's hot.  I've got the handle glued up using some G-flex. Any advise is greatly appreciated!

I really like the shape of this blade in raw form.
The walnut is beautiful and the carving adds the right touch. 
Very well done so far and should and will finish up with class.
