Tip: Bending jig for straightening knife blades, etc.

This tool comes in handy for straightening blades out of an interrupted quench,… when you don’t have much time and otherwise for bending and straightening hot steel. It’s simply a 3/4 inch round bar of steel, bent into a “U” shape and held in a leg vice.


  1. I made a couple of those today in different sizes to use as bending tools for scrolls.It will save me from having to make hardy tools for that.
    Thanks for the Info.

  2. Great! Glad that was of some use to you Jeffro. ;)
