    a nice walk in the woods helps me relax and relieves tension....

    the fact i'm dragging a shovel and a body should be irrelevant...

    Looks great Paco. I love the square points. I love you're inspection process. Micrometer's and caliper's are so overrated.... LOL

    Edit: you muted the points... It still looks great.

    I just finished watching the video's. Great job on them. So, you're left handed? So am I. Do you make left handed kamisori's? I've seen them for sale, and they aren't cheap.

    Again, great job Paco. It looks great.

    Nice work, so you don't heat treat the handle?

    nope...... it is just a bolt...... and there is no need to heat treat it even if it would harden...

    I am glad you get that good of results from your process.

    Since blades are thin, it is often safer to quench is a slower medium than specified. Most steel samples for hardening tests are 1 inch square, and the data from the published values use that dimension typically.

    I am also concerned about your temperature control, but some people are better at gauging temperature by eye than others.

    Lastly, there is little or no need to move that quickly from heat to quench, and risk damaging the blade.

    Very nice blade. Do you ever make anything smaller than 8/8?

    been heat treating stuff that way since i was 13 in my dad's welding shop..... i am pretty good with the "by eye" method....

    i prefer the quench in oil and that is what i will be using from now on... this was my first time experimenting with water and this steel.... i will use veggie or olive oil next time...

    i made a 7/8ths the other day.... i just prefer the bigger ones..... i will make anything anyone wants.... i actually have a 4/8ths in the wings waiting....
