WIP Bowie knife

#27
What do you think happened with the Hamon?
When I quenched it, I did not have enough room in my quench tank (old crockpot) to completely get it under the fluid. This is the biggest blade that I have ever made. Normally I make hunters and edc knives. Bowies are much longer and I did not check this before the quench. So in my panic, I just edge quenched it as deep as I could get it. Good enough was not good enough. Lesson learned.
