A rubber abrasive will do also. Once the outer ridges shine like a mirror, polish them lightly on the buffer. In this process the "valleys" are hardly touched, so the natural black forging oxidation is kept intact. Finally, clean the rosette with a solvent to remove all wax residue and dry with a clean rag. To draw the oxidation colors, hold the rosette with the thin tongs and heat it in the hot core of a gas flame, as shown. Soon the first color appears - a light straw yellow. If color moves too fast, hold the rosette higher above the flame.
With Vs-inch thin tongs, pick a hot slug out of the can and place it on the anvil. Heavy pounding with the flat of a 3V2-pound hammer thins and flattens it. The slug's diameter is now considerably larger. Place it in the little mound of ashes and cinders below the forge to anneal. Treat all hot slugs in this way if they are of high-carbon steel (annealing is not necessary if slugs are mild steel). After annealing, drill a hole in the center of each disc to fit the thickness of the nail to be used in it.
This time grind very carefully to maintain an even thickness. Measure for accuracy with the calipers if there is any doubt, before brittle-quenching once more. Now the blade should emerge from the quench perfectly aligned and brittlehard. Illustrations 5 and 6 show the blade being ground thinner. Try not to lose the brittleness through overheating. Hold a finger lightly on the blade while grinding; if it becomes too hot to touch, interrupt grinding momentarily, holding the blade 1/16 inch from the stone to allow it to cool in the air thrown off by the stone as it revolves.
