Usually they're dialed in after protos are made, but we have had to make mods on some steels.
sal and others, from what you know, what is the most up-to-date method of heat treating when it comes to factory knives, that is proven to give the best qualities in the final blade steel? Is it some cryogenic quenching process?
Most people whom I have talked knives with, except for true knife enthusiasts and users like people on this forum, when you discuss heat treatment, still have this image in their mind of either a blacksmith with tongs dropping a red-hot knife blade into a vat of water, or, a machine doing the same thing. They are unaware of things like sub zero degree quenching and powder steel and all that.
