Hi Pierre, how would you straighten a hardened (say 60hrc) mono steel knife if there is a slight bend? bending it by hand didn't really work and seemed risky to exert more force. if I hammer it, should I do it on wood or an anvil? thanks!

The only "safe" way is by using controlled heat and 3 brass rods. Set up is a bit tricky, but the results are reliable and controllable. DO NOT hammer it. It will likely crack or break at that hardness. Especially a powder steel.
