newbie questions

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the site and have been doing lots of reading. I used to work at a machine shop and when we heat treated parts we always left them a little oversize and ground them down to finish size after heat treating. Does the same thing apply to knives? For instance do you grind the bevel before heat treating? Do you sharpen the knife before heat treating? I don't want to make this more complicated than it is. Thanks in advance for the responses.
