    Amazing knives, Fred. It's hard to pick a favourite from that bunch, though I'm drawn to the folders, of course.

    Awesome work! I was wondering, what do you do with that O1 to get the "hamon" do you edge quench and then do a deep etch?

    Thank you.
    To metal99 : no edge quench, I always do a full quench for O1, the ''hamon'' is only an acid etch. I first do it accidentally by trying to protect the blade's edge with varnish when I was doing the patina. The blade came out with this fake hamon. After that it sort of became my ''mark'' with O1 blades.
    Only my 1084 and 1095 blades are edge quench.
