    Bump. Apparently membership is not needed to receive PMs. I received one on something unrelated to the Kith.

    2021 Summer Kitchen Kith

    Getting feedback is VERY important. We have all seen American Idol auditions where everyone has told someone how great they are, but they really need some proper instruction. I asked for feedback continuously as a therapist decades ago. It made me a much better therapist much quicker.

    How to Heat Treat 8670

    2021 Summer Kitchen Kith

    Not a hard and fast rule, but if you are not using an oven or thermocouple monitored forge, it’s probably best to have the blade heat treated by someone who does have that equipment.
