thanks guys, nice to have some people with metallurgy backgrounds. that's one of my many weak areas

another question. i've heard of people making knives from old lawn mower blades by grinding down to a desired shape and then sharpening with a wheel before doing all the fine tuning by hand. i know there're tricks to this. after grinding do you quench it with oil or air cool. i know those blades are both springy and hardened and its not a 5-cent answer but 5-cents is all i got. thanks much, jerry
now is never here but the past is always present.
