This one was ordered by someone who wanted to have a kitchen knife from the same steel as his razor. As I have said many times, wootz can be a tricky steel to HT. I mean, getting a good knife is relatively easy. But getting a good pattern requires good polishing, good etching, but most of all good heat treatment. Recently I have started talking to a former student of Alfred and we've been discussing lots of theory. As a result I've changed my heat treatment yet again. I HTed the knife on monday after several thermal cycles. After quench, I thought I could see the pattern already. But there is also a part wishful thinking or confirmation bias involved, so I didn't want to draw early conclusions. 2 days ago I did the post HT machine grinding, and yesterday I did a couple of quick dips in nital, just to see if I could get 'something' to show up. After machine grinding and before the hand sanding, the pattern is always going to be vague, but at the very least, you'll be able to see the difference between 'something' and 'nothing'. The results are promising.
