I tried heat treating the garden knife tonight by lantern light

I over-tempered the long blade but got the chisel point how I wanted it. I could tell the difference while sharpening it.

I may try re-heat treating the blade again soon. During the day. Things happen so fast. At least this is something I can keep trying untill I get it right.
