    Vintage sabatier blanks on ebay

    I recently ran across some old vintage sab blanks on ebay. Two 10" chef blanks had a buy it now price, so I bought the both. Easy to find if you search ebay. They look like great project knives. Seller says they're over 100 years old, hard to say, but I'm going to ask more about the history. Also no maker stamp I guess. Just a friendly fyi

    They are likely not heat treated and will be pain in a back to HT. Ask Devin.

    Is there a way to tell if they have been heat treated? And if they haven't been yet, think I could send them out for a ht by someone like peters?

    You can try to cut into metal with a file, to test if a steel is heat treated. If I recall it correctly, the steel on Sabatier blanks is similar to 1080.

    Peters might do it. Give them a call.

    I bought some of these from this same guy about 20 years ago. I'm not sure if all of these are 100 years old or not because he had some of the smaller ones made out of stainless.

    They need to annealed first, then hardened and tempered. They are droped forged and I don't think they were normalized or annealed.

    Quench in oil from 1500f. Temper between 350 and 425 depending on desired hardness.

    Damned good info, thanks much. I just with I had the skill and tools to do so. I might call peters to ask once I see the blade for myself. I bought purely as a project blade, I hope I didn't waste my money on a blade I won't be able to use. Thanks much for the info, guys.
