Quench,

I tend to agree with you on this. My guess is that if he really was going through all these heat/cryo steps that that all he really achieved was perhaps a very slight gain from the double austenize/quench/cryo process and a big waste of time on the post temper cryo.

It is my understanding that a post cryo temper is needed to relieve the stresses from the deep freeze. If this is correct, then his post temper cryo would yield a weaker blade--not the tougher blade he was claiming. :confused:
