How I Heat Treat My Blades


All of my blades are heat treated in my Evenheat digitally controlled oven. High Carbon steels are normalized and thermal cycled prior to quenching. High alloy steels like CPM3V, CPM Magnacut, M390, etc. are foil wrapped and Argon purged for a zero carbon loss heat treat. These steels are Plate quenched with Aluminum plates. These steels are then given a Cryo Treatment treatment down to -320 Fahrenheit. Finally they are triple tempered in the proper range to give the best hardness vs toughness for the given blade's intended use.
