    Well science marches on ! I'd like to see some of you makers will experiment to see if indeed superconductivity is the answer to the mysterious Vorpal blade !! In the Japanese research red wine seems to be the best quenchant.
    A superconductive vorpal katana ! WOW !!

    ... So why not try using "Everclear" and get the most bang for your buck?

    I’d like science a lot better, if it wasn’t so hell bent on getting us all blown up, fried, poisoned or otherwise maimed, crippled or killed. LOL ;)

    Because East TN moonshine is both cheaper and smoother.

    Wait... what?

    EDIT: I don't understand how conductivity would affect the HT-response of a given alloy. Please enlighten me. If the alcohol soak doesn't help the steel, I will just keep using it as "grinding fluid" and "brain bleach".

    I have a hunch that all answers can be found in beer.
