Currently I am working on a stainless damascus pizza cutter (unknown exact steel composition as it was cutoff pieces) and I was debating heat treating the blade and handle parts in my coffee can forge. Since it is just cutting pizza and such where edge hardness is not critical I was wondering if a specific heat treat was not necessary. Edge won't be super sharp and I just don't want it to roll from being too soft. There are also other times where I may make something out of scrap stainless knife steel or damascus and I was wondering where I would have to send it out. Things like jewelry, a pry bar, or when using steel as a part for something and just don't want the piece to bend. Is there any universal way to just do a basic heat treat? I already know specific temps and soak times as well as certain quench methods are advised depending on the type of steel. Can I just heat to cherry red then quench in oil and do an aggressive temper process to make sure I have some hardness but not too much? Likewise with the bracket that will hold the cutting blade, I want to give it some hardness so it maintains shape but it doesn't need to be knife hard. Thanks in advance!
