View Full Version : Small Batch Heat treating companies in or around North Carolina

03-23-2013, 12:26 AM
I am going to start making knives very soon and the only problem I can currently see is heat treating. I do not have the room or equipment to heat treat. Does anyone know of companies that can heat treat very small batches of knives, from 1 to 10 at a time, in or near North Carolina? I am probably going to be using several different types of steel and I would like to determine what the hardness will be of the end product.
Thanks for the help.

Local machine shops often have the equipment to heat treat.

Have you found a NC heat treat company yet?

Silverthorn Knives is based out of Mebane. I've seen some of their stuff at a shop here in Durham. You could try giving them a shout.
