I got the bug and I got it bad!! Next ones are gonna be out of either 1095 hi-carbon or d-2 tool steel. Either way they will be sent out for PROPER heat treat and temper! I can't wait!!! Giggles

Looks awesome, especially for a first attempt.

Awesome post, Panda. I think you should move on to 1095, but wait a bit until you tackle D2. It's a lot more complicated to work with. 1095 is a simple steel, but it can yield fantastic results when used well.

Maybe you can try some differential heat treatment in future blades. Try to get your hands on Ed Fowler's "Knife Talk" series of videos. They are great, they show how even a well established bladesmith like him still learns and changes his mind when new info becomes available. I think the first one has a part on which he explains his heat treatment. He uses simple tools (a blowtorch and a kitchen oven).
