Bloomery fail questions.

It’s a bit hard to tell, but it may be a bit high? If the sparks look good everywhere, my guess would be you might need a higher temperature and/or a faster quench. I would try a thinner coupon in water, and maybe shoot for a higher quench temperature than you are used to with modern steel.

Sounds good. I was mainly curious to see what if any patten I would have.

Hopefully I can get some of this looking like a blade soon.
