Nice break in blade

While home for a while, decided to use up some left over antler tine into small knives…..(stocking stuffers at best)

This one broke impatiently tapping on the guard. (6150 leftover stock).

Really pleased with this break!

Nope they’re tempered, followed recommended guidelines for 6150. I think because of the normalization decalescence/recalescence, ,etc.

Forged these several months ago and tempered each one right after quench, one hour, cool down, then one hour again, (unless I got impatient)

Well, at least there was one good thing about it.  You got the grain the way that you want it.  Too bad about the blade though.

Well, I guess you can call that bitter-sweet :)

 

That little ridge near the spine on the back half of the blade may indicate that there was already a crack there.  Otherwise I'd say you just hadn't paid your annual dues to the quench god for the year.

Hah, yes I am short on the dues for sure!
But no heartache wasn’t a major project. I am working on a couple of others I’d be really upset though!
