I have been messing with heat treating and cycling the steel to get a better edge and hold it well. Been pretty happy with results and it cleans up real well. This one I did a paracord wrap handle (first one) and to keep from corroding if the paracord gets wet I Cerakoted everything under the wrap.

W2 is a water quench steel. I have used water to quench and test but results for me were very inconsistent. Last year I went to using engineered oils (parks 50) for my “W” series steels (1095 and W2) and getting full hardness and better consistency as that oils is designed for water quench steel.

Dang those are beautiful but I'm extremely disappointed. I thought you were going to teach us how to save on our taxes.
