National Knife Day 8/24/2019!

How about a blog on Heat Treating Recipes? As well as the Rockwell hardness you get for the same.

Here are some of the steels I use. Always looking for new Heat Treat recipes. Been at this a while if you need on let me know. the picture is a sample of what I do. The balance can be seen on FB at Mongrel Knives. Hope I am not violating any rules here still trying to navigate the site. Ken
