    Places for heat treating steel

    So I have some AEB-L that I want heat treated since I currently don't have the equipment or knowledge to do it myself, and the place I normally go to can't do stainless at the hardness I want it. So does anyone know of a good company that I can use to heat treat this steel? The closer to Raleigh NC the better.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I've only made a couple knives so don't have a lot of heat treating experience but these guys were one of the shops recommended to me when I asked a similar question. Think they can probably take care of what you need:

    I know about peters heat treat. I was looking for other alternatives. I got a quote from them a while ago and it was $25 per blade as far as I understood it, and I have 19 that need to be done. That is $350 dollars more than I was hoping to pay. Also shipping half way across the east coast is something I was trying to avoid.
    Thank you for the recommendation though.

    it's $25 per blade for 1-4 blades, if you do batch it's way cheaper, i was told $100 covers about 20 blades.

    Oh that is exactly the price range I was looking for. I think I will use them then. Thanks everyone.
