Kiridashi from file

Recommended Posts

Read a lot online about working with 1095, which seems to be what many Nicholson files are made from. Ended up doing a three cycle normalization, then quenched the blade in heated canola oil, and then a 2 hour temper at 400 degrees. Sharpened up beautifully and careful sanding highlights the pattern nicely.
