    Cryogenic quenching question

    I cant seem to find how lone or cold I should allow my D2 to get in LN anyone got any advice on it. I've looked it up on the knife steel reference also from the company itself and still nothing. It all says it will benefit from it but other than that nothing.

    Quick question.

    So how do I achieve a distal taper. Like I told opaul tight now I do hollow ground knives. Can I still achieve a distal taper when I do hollow grinds and is the process for tapering the same as the on the handle as it is for the blade??

    Quick question.

    Yes I do mostly hollow grinds but I like the full look of a distal taper. I did my first tapered handle now I'd like to know how to match up the blade.

    I completely agree. Apparently his grandson got ahold of it and it was way rougher than that. I'm looking to just finish it enough for him to enjoy. He himself worked on this particular blade(I think that is what happened to the plunge lines.) I'd like to finish this one. I may just finish it...

    Ohhh. Ok yea thanks that does help. See when I was first shown this I thought of one of those but as I got into it I couldn't figure out how to get it pinned in place.

    This is true. I may just finish it with my current ability. The man is getting up in age and wants to be able to pass it down so I think I'm finish it just not head in the direction of which it was originally thought up to be.

    He just asked me to finish it. I was wondering if there was a way to finish it kinda in the ballpark of the original thought behind the knife but without talking to the maker that is looking to be impossible. I'm thinking I will take that spur off and just add a bolster and scale.

    I was thinking of a slotted guard but the back (for lack of better term) flares are wider than the handle of the blade or where the guard will rest. So I am not sure what to do.

    Yes he asked me to finish the knife not to use but to remember his good friend. So in a word, Yes.

    I believe it is the connection to the maker. Out of curiosity what are some of the problems with the blade it's soild, well made, it is already been threw heat treatment.
