Hi guys! I just bought a villager and the blade is very soft. I saw an article in Blade mag. on heat treating with a torch but I can't find it. Can anyone give me all the details I need to get this done? I do not want to remove the handle. I basically know how to do it, I just need the details like how close do I hold the torch and what type of oil do I quench it in. Also do I get the blade red hot or not? Thanks for any help!!!
