    Small Batch Heat treating companies in or around North Carolina

    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.

    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.
