Heat Treat:

Preheat forge or heat treat oven to 1475-1500 F.  Place blade in heat source with edge up and allow to cycle back to 1475-1500 F.  Soak for 5 minutes, then quench in a fast quench heat treating oil.  Temper at 400 F twice, allowing to cool to room temperature in between cycles of 1 hour each.

Etching & Finishing:

Finish balde with a sharp belt only, taking to at least 400 grit.  After a thorough wash with mild dish soap, fully submerge your piece in etching solution of 1 part ferric choloride to 4 parts distilled water - for 1 minute only.  Remove from acid and rinse with clean water - using a 1200 grit wet/dry sand paper or 0000 steel wool, gently rub the entire piece.  Dip back in the acid bath for 5 minutes this time.  Keep repeating this process until the desired etch is achieced.  Neutralize with tri sodium phosphate or ammonia.
