Profile, Heat Treat, Bevel
OK, I have heard that I need to be careful and not try and heat treat metal that is too thin because it will warp, and discovered that it is sooo true! I basically turned a chef knife that I was working on into a potato chip of warped badness because I got it far to thin to handle heat treating without warping.
So in the spirit of learning, I took a step back and profiled two utility knifes and heat treated them first.
Next I will see how hard it is to grind the bevel without overheating the steel.
