So I picked up some damascus scraps and I'm trying to grind small blades out of a few of the scraps. Is there an easy way to get this damascus relatively hard? Can I just heat it up with a small propane torch and quench it in motor oil or something? I'm not looking to get this stuff to 60RC just hard enough to hold a decent edge.
Thanks guys,
