Bob Ouellette Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 JJ Simon told me about these a few weeks ago and suggest I make some. They're all 1/4" carbide rods domed and soldered into a tack hammer. They all have a baked-on oil finish. I had my first opportunity to use I've last night. I had a knife warp in the quench more than I could grind out. After the 2 tempering cycles at 350° F, I decided to give it a go. It blew my mind how easy it was to end up with a straight blade. The hammer marks disappeared pretty quick when I was cleaning up the scale from heat treating. I'm disappointed I didn't take a better picture of the warp before I fixed it. You can see all the faint like marks it made as I hammered the inside of the curve. I was even able to fix a bit of a twist.
