Hey diy,
I have no idea what I'm doing so I'm looking for guidance in making some decorative knifes out of chrome vanadium spanners for practise,
So how would I go about reworking, heat treating, quenching and caring for blades I plan to use in the kitchen

Quench in oil or water and how hot would I need chrome vanadium to be for the quench? Temper in oven how long at what degrees Celsius?
>>
>>1242826
quench in used motor oil once its past its critical stage, which is like 2000f or when it glows super bright and is no longer magnetic, temper at 400f for an hour or so then air cool
>>
There are hundreds of youtube videos and thousands of websites with in depth data on how to work and treat every kind of metal. A Japanese basket weaving forum for pedophiles is the wrong place to ask.

im actually surprised /diy/ doesnt have a forging general, given its upswing in popularity over the last few years

We have blacksmithing generals all the time. Check the archive.
