I am experimenting with my first suretouch handle on a filet knife. I am wondering about the finishing process. How fine to sand it and what finish, if any, to use. This is intended to be a regular using knife.
You might want to consider a normalizing cycle. Per Dr. Larrin Thomas, this should help with warping. The difference is that you heat to austenizing temperature then air cool. His book is a wealth of information but, it gets into a lot of deep science.
