Title: My knives ~ Reds heat treat.
Post by: upthecreek on February 15, 2015, 06:35:49 PM
I sent my knives back to Steve for a little maintenance. They've been well used. He was kind enough to spruce them up for me. I did suggest he test his heat treat and he did it. I've had these blades several years, his methad was good then and it is still today.

My scandi woodlore. How's this.

Both need an edge and some scratches/gouges removed

Steve does an Awesome spa job on blades. My confidence never wavered on his heat treat.

You were supposed to refurbish them, not make brand new ones that look exactly the same! :D

Great job on those though. If I didn't already know they were being refurbished I would have thought they were new.

Those turned out looking great!! 

I remember that convex and always thought it was interesting.  Kinda of a high sabre grind with a convex edge.  I can't remember if that's the only one he let out of the stable or not, but I always liked it.  Glad to see it's wearing a brand now too!
