Has anyone made any knives from the 5160 that some of us ordered from burtoncutlery? Do you have any pics? How or Did you heat treat? I am hoping to start on something in the near future and was just curious.
Thanks for your time,

Heat treat was with a torch at the time these were made. I am setting up a salt pot now, just more control. Heat to one color change over nonmagnetic and quench in warm (peanut) oil. Like many I have now switched my oil to an actual quench oil. I am using a lot of W2 so Parks 50 is my primary oil. Temper 375 for 2 hours repeat and check edge for chip out.
