Cryo Treatment

Hi all,

Greetings from Fiji.

I m a part time knife enthusiast based in Fiji. I have made many knives. I work with the following steels, 5160, 1095, W2, and L6.

Generally speaking, when one talks about Cryo does it necessarily mean liquid nitrogen - i don't have access to it.

I was just wandering if the househld deep freeze could be used instead as a make shift cryo treatment. If i can use the freezer than how long does the steel need to be in the freezer.?

Thanks in advance.

Philip Lee
