Cyanide Frizzen Hardening
After polishing the Frizzen face to remove the worst gouges, it is heated to hardening temperature, dipped into my own carbon-cyanide rich compound, then held at temperature, then "quenched" in water.
This is followed by tempering (a soak at a lower temperature) which develops the final mechanical properties and relieves stresses. it is then cooled in a traditional natural oil.
I use my own proprietary compound blend of ancient and modern chemicals for carbon steel hardening.
