Question on time between normalization cycles and heat treat

Recommended Posts

Hi.  I have a blade that I did normalization cycles on while heating up a forge to do a heat treat on another blade.  It happened maybe a month ago and it's been sitting on my desk since then waiting its turn.  My question is - does the steel structure achieved during these cycles remain the same over time or do I need to redo the normalization before HT?  My hunch is that it will remain the same, but I just want to confirm.

Thank you!
