I used a pottery kiln, it has a max temp of 2000F. I took the 1095 to 1475F held it for 10min then edge quenched in parks 50 oil. I didnít do clay thatís the reason for the straight line. I donít know about tempering removing a Hamon. This very well may have been beginners luck as itís my only one I have done. After tempering I just did a lot of sanding to 1500 grit then etched in ferric chloride cut with white vinegar. I would dip it for 20 seconds then rub hard with cotton balls; I did this until it was the color I liked then sprayed it down with windex to neutralize he acid.
