    Novice question

    Was using a flat file to start off cause there wasn’t much of an edge to start with. The file would bite in fine on the tip and back of the blade. But the middle of the blade was very hard and brittle feeling. The file would glide over it like ice. Just saw some reviews on this blade and a few brake in the middle. That’s what worries me. Not sure what you mean by sticky.
  4. I got a new blade for Christmas (Hibben IV). Made of 1090. Was going to sharpen it but the middle of the blade is to hard. I think it has a bad heat treat. Can I reheat treat a blade or will this just make it worse. If I can. What should i do. Thanks
