for hardening steel two ways to start the detail necessary to prope
rly warm up.Take it and put it on the fire on the coals.If there is no fire - heat on the stove or burner.But note that for the process of hardening steel is strongly recommended coals, because their temperature is much higher than the temperature, which can be obtained on the burner or plite.Cherez some time (for example, to "warm up" knife you will need about 10-15 minutes) will become part bright-malinovy ​​color, which means that the desired temperature is reached.Tongs remove the item from the fire.
