I heat treat high alloyed stainless steels, including but not limited to Crucible CPM S35-VN®, CPM S30V®, CPM 154®, Timken-Latrobe BG 42®, Hitachi ATS 34®, Uddeholm Elmax Superclean®, Sandvik 13C26®, AEBL®, 440C,Damasteel, and Nichols stainless damascus.
O1, A2, D2, D6, 5160, L6, 52100, 10xx series, W-series and carbon damascus steel are some of the tool steels I heat treat.
While I can attempt to heat treat your mystery steel perhaps a file, old wagon wheel, truck spring or other unknown steel, it is virtually a guess work doing so. Buy from a reputable source and you can expect good results. After all your time spend crafting the material into a useful object should be worth something.
Unknown materials are virtually a guess work when heat treating such and might result in undesirable outcomes!
I employ a custom designed heat treating furnace with full atmospheric controls and digital temperature controls with an accuracy of +- 3° degree at 2000° Fahrenheit.
Heat treating and quenching cycles are tailored for the intended use of the product. Multiple quenching and tempering media's are used for optimum performance. Optionally a cold tempering cycle is used for additional performance increase.
My heat treating services are geared to other knifemakers or industries that require speciality heat treating on a small scale.
