Thanks Matt.

In talking to another smith I asked about the lack of contrast between the 1080 and the 15N20 in the Damascus. He asked if the whole thing had been quenched and I said "No, just the dark line you see.....OHHHHHHHHHH!"

So this one is going back for a few normalizing cycles and then getting a full quench and temper and we'll see how it looks after that.

The learning never stops.

Into the light may you know
