My Frizzen Went Soft!

Recommended Posts

Well, it was not case hardend very deep so I had to reharden it myself.

I got some hardening powder with some potassium cyanide in it and it worked well.

A short field test was a success.

Some say it won't be very deep harden.

I may try the old way next time in the wood burner.

Sorry but I'm sure I'm not the only one, so to save others googling it

 

"what's a frizzen?"

Another name is hammer.

 

It's what the flint in the jaws of the cock strike and shaves fine whisps of red hot steel towards the pan full of prime.

A flintlock.
