While knife/blade making is as much art as it is science, we advise our customers to stick to the time-tested temperature of 1475°F when heat treating. Cast Master Elite forges are rock solid for reaching and holding the temperature you set, and come with features not found on other brands.
We also recommend an oil quench for efficient quenching of 1095. This allows for maximum hardness and blade longevity. Brine or water quenching are also acceptable, but can produce less predictable results.
