Not sure Chief but it really smells sweet unlike most of the fat on our deer here in Middle TN. Yes Kevin, I get it to red and non magnetic and quench in Veggie oil , then in the oven 375 for 2 hours, I know it is not as precise as you do but it seems to get the blade where it holds a good edge skates a file  but not so hard so it's brittle. Thanks for answering DC's question and it also looks cool. ;) :) And the wood for the scales is Leopard wood .  ;)

ok your heating to critical in the coals.
I thought you were tempering..
I can see how what your doing could work very well,
heating the steel slowly in those coals you probably don't end up with much warping.

Watch out! If the club ladies find out they will be making cosmetics and soaps and candles out of the stuff. Could put a big strain on your supply.

 :) I doubt any of the ladies in our bunch would be interested in doing that Chief  ;) Especially Miss Joanie. ;)Several of us take this stuff pretty serious but most of the women could care less, Miss Joanie says she loves and supports me because I love it  ??? and that is the only reason.  ;) Thanks Kevin, it seems to work OK but for sure not as precise as you do them and no I don't get much warping. I really need a good forge but we are still working out issues on the one we built and also it is a gas hog so for now I just use what I have.  :)

looks like lots going on Pappy. I never turn down deer either. I was given two does right before I was going out New Years Eve. I thought I might get in trouble with the wife being a little late after skinning and gutting them but she was happy to have the deer.

Pretty cool your buddy got that doe with that bow. Kinda full circle.
