I Forge Iron

Any tips?

Recommended Posts

I've just gotten a bar of 1095 and plan on making several medium to large knives from it. Any input on hings like heat treating? I've heard that 1095 can be finicky with somethings but everyone says different things about different steel. I can't forge yet so I've just been doing stock removal.

Forgive me, im still getting used to the site and realize this is the wrong thread to be asking heat treating questions. i saw a previous post where you said "1095 likes a short soak time before the quench" im a little confused what exactly you mean by a short soak time, and will this be any significance to me since  i will not be forging the steel.
