    Kiridashi Marking Knife

    A Very Beautiful piece of Work! My "ONLY Question" is "WHY Reheat" it in a 400 Degree Oven "AFTER" It's "Already Tempered"? I "Will" ask a Local Blacksmith @ that. "I" would think that by Heating It AGAIN and NOT Quenching it you "Might Have" made it "Softer"?

    Easy Generator to Home Hook Up

    Since I have a Portable gasoline Generac, I used the Breaker Interlock for My hook-up. I "Used" a Heavy Duty (I "Think" 10 gauge) Industrial Wire with Interlock (I'm not sure of the actual name.) Connector Plugs (Male) on each end. To hook up My Generac, that "Wire" Twists into the Generator Outlet and the Male Outlet on the outside of my house. It "Feeds" thru a Fused Switch that Cuts Out my Line Feed from the power company and Allows the Generator to Feed my Breaker box. That "Interlock" switch is under the Kitchen Sink and Isolates the Generator Feed from the House Feed just by Throwing the Switch.My OVEN Light is on ONLY the Power Company Feed, so I Open my Oven Door when I do this.

When the "Power Comes" back on, my Oven Light turns on and I Stop my Generator, I "Un-Hook" everything and throw that Fused Switch again.My portable Generac generator "Works Great", but I "Wired it Myself" and in my Township, it "Has to Be" Inspected every 3 Years by MY Building Inspector.In other words, anybody Hooking Up a power supply system to their house, BETTER Check their "Local Building" Codes. My "Township's" Building Code requires "Me, to" Get My local Building Inspector to "Check" my hook-up every 3 years. "IF" I don't have Him do that, My Homeowners Insurance "Might NOT Cover" a Fire in my house when I'm using my Portable Generator.If my "Power" went out, and I was using my generator, if Lightning Hit my house again, I "Might Not" be Insured for a Fire by my Insurance. CHECK Your Local Building codes!
