5160 And Decarb

Another question for you. Have you quenched 5160 and find the file cuts at first, then skates a little while later?
I dont think this is my imagination.

It does seem to occur more on those two steels. I do not have a problem with 1084 or W-2.
I guess we should label this thread the Decarb Blues. You are not alone.

I once hardened a blade 5 times before I figured it out. Doh!
Yep, 5160. That was back when I did dumb things.
