Squash quench


Recommended Posts

I read (in The Complete Blacksmith if memory serves) about a method of quenching water-hardening steels using a squash or melon cut to approximate the edge profile by simply sink the hot edge of the steel into the fruit. Has anyone ever tried or had any luck with this method?
