View Full Version : Knife Making Tip

02-23-2013, 04:29 PM
Here's an experiment I did to attempt to anneal the tang of a knife without changing the temper of the blade. This might come in handy for a repair you are doing, or as in the video - you need to drill hardened steel and don't have an oven to heat treat.

This may be a common thing for those of you that work with steel or weld, but it was sort of a trial and error thing for me. Seems to work........and no.......this does not make me an expert because I made a video.......maybe if I had a blog too??? bazinga

A water soaked rag works for me when welding. You might want to give it a try. Good video!

Plus one on the wet rag, works for soldering, as well as welding.
Good vid......You have a blog yet?

There are numerous heat paste etc products out there. I've used that material you used with a lot of success.

that's kewl, it would come in handy for those grind and dip saw blade knives.

I can drill through the saw blades pretty easily, but these planer blades are a definite no go for me.

Thanks for the tips on the wet rag.
