Experience with all things metal
There is a LONG list of materials that can be heat treated in a variety of ways, most of the materials being metal alloys. Over the years, Byington has seen a wide array of these different metals come in and out, such as carbon steels, high alloy steels, titanium alloys, aluminum alloys and each of these metals has their own unique set of characteristics and properties. We have seen and worked with it all, from air craft turbines and implants to throwing axes and bicycles. We understand how metal works and know what it takes to get the results you need.
Experience with Blades
Each tool or part out there is designed to satisfy a specific purpose, requiring certain and characteristics and properties to do so. Blades are no exception, being used for a variety of tasks, such as chopping, hacking, slicing and puncturing. Each task requires the blade to have unique characteristics to optimize it for its tasks and to satisfy the needs and desires of the wielder. This not only means choosing the right material for the job, but also ensuring the correct heat treatment is performed on the blade. We have worked with multiple metals over the years, and we know the specific heat treatment that will give you the desired results for your blades.
