Mike I actually do both; I etch them first for better penetration of the bluing I use and also to see where my hamon is,, I edge quench all my knives to give me 60 HRC on my cutting edge when I temper. If you look real close on the second picture you can see the hamon, on the antler knife, it's just the way the light shines on it to appear the temper line.
