Salt Bath Kilns

KF-13.5 model shown. Deeper models available, see below.



The KF 11 Series Knife Ovens allow you to explore the process of heat treating.  These kilns are specifically designed for the use of salt pots. The option of high temperature salt, low temperature salt or just used as an open air kiln give the craftsman the freedom to decide how the blades are treated. These kilns are suitable for austenizing, annealing, marquenching, ausquenching and tempering of most knife steels. We think you will enjoy using an Evenheat Oven for your heat treating needs. This kiln is stackable in 9" sections. You can have 9", 18", 27", 36", 45", or 54" of depth.
