  1. Hi, has anybody used Aztec fast quench oil for steels like 1095? Im in the U.K and parks50 seems to be about double the price
  2. I'm trying to heat treat 3 knives out of 1095 and I'm having issues with it. I have a propane forge with 2 burners. I have no issues getting the steel up to temp. I do not have anything to monitor the exact temperature so I've just been going to non magnetic and then quenching in canola oil, heated to 135 degrees. When I take the knife out, I test it by scraping it with a file and the file always digs in. I have looked up videos, looked on message boards and I am doing exactly the same thing as everyone else (and in many cases the exact same setup) and the steel is not getting any harder. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? I'm so close to throwing in the towel and sending it off to get heat treated. Thanks for your help.
  3. I've been having a lot of fun with this material, it's great for forging all sortsa wacky integrals and then not have to spend hours getting the scales to fit. My favorite comment yet is that the material looks like someone vomited back up osso bucco and noodles on the handle... I'm still giggling
  4. Forged this knife for a retirement gift for a co worker. Forged it from 1095 steel. Full tang. Blade is 8 1/2" OAL. Full flat grind with a satin finish. Hand rubbed to 600 grit. Nice deep choil. Decorative filework on spine of the tang. Brick red liners. Handles sanded by hand to 3000 grit and buffed. Sculpted to fit in hand. Fitted with 1/8" bronze pins and a 1/4" brass lanyard tube. Sheath is 7 oz leather, hand sewn. Full welt. Line 24 brass snap. Antiqued finish and border tooling. I like the way it all came together.
  5. Forged this blade this morning. It is a full hidden tang made from 1095. It has a 3/4 full flat grind on it. Nice distal taper. Blade is approximately 5" long and 1 1/4 wide and about 3/16 thick. Gonna be fitted with a brass guard and whitetail antler. Going to texture the guard with a ball peen hammer. Let me know what you guys think!
