Very nice Tanto.

It looks very well made and detailed. A Bob Engnath blade too? Shoot I think I'd clean that up and sell it.
I'm working off memory from the 90's, but I seem to remember a knife maker who used the S series steels for knives and he used a water quench and didn't have any cracking issues. I have only heat treated it in an industrial situation and quenched it in oil, but they were thick punches and dies for punching through metal. Pretty much by the machinist's book.
