Scale pattern on filed area after heat treating

Recommended Posts

so was it how I quenched or my oil temp when I quenched  I thawed the oil  then dropped two hot rr spikes into it to heat it up before I quenched  but the knife barely fit so I could not move it up and down much  using a àmo box for my quench tank

It is a rather nice patination effect to my eye. I would be happy if one of mine turned out that way-unless i was looking for a different finish of course. Would it have any detrimental effect to the strength of the blade? If not it would be a keeper to be repeated for me.
