I was watching a new show on Discocery last night, "Blade Brothers", which is a series featuring a custom knife shop (stock removal=sad face). One of the things I found intriguing was the maker's method of quenching the steel by sandwiching the piece straight out of the HT oven between two 1" thick slabs of aluminum to use as a heat sink.

CAN-ENG has a wide spectrum of quenching solutions for Aluminum and Ferrous Products, minimizing distortion and providing predictable metallurgical results. Our knowledge of heat transfer as applied to quenching allows us to offer the broadest quenching technologies available.
Quenching of Aluminum Alloys D. Scott MacKenzie, Houghton International Niels Bogh, Bogh Industries Tom Croucher, Tom Croucher and Associates QUENCHING refers to the rapid cooling of metal from the solution treating temperature, typically between 465 and 565 C (870 and 1050 F) for aluminum alloys. The fundamental
7050 aluminum plates are the principal choice for aerospace applications. The alloy characterized by improved toughness/corrosion resistance values vs the 7075 alloy. 7050 is less quench sensitive than most other aerospace alloys.
Among these steps quenching is a crucial step to suppress the precipitation to retain the supersaturation of solid solution, control the distortion, and minimize the residual stress in aluminum ...

We bought some big planks of Aluminum (big) and cut them into sets of plates. Use these as quench plates for your air hardening steels instead of air or even oil hardening steels. Tip: In use, place your knife from the oven, still in the pouch between the plates. Press flat with your hand. You don't need much pressure at all.
Effect of quench water temperature on the tensile strength of 1-inch 7075 aluminum plate. Table 1: Typical Water Quenching Cooling Rates for Various Thicknesses of Aluminum Alloys Because of the rapid change in the quenching characteristics of water above 160 ° F, control of quenching speeds at various locations in a quench tank is difficult ...
aluminum lattice as shown in Fig. 1 . For optimal properties, it is desirable to retard this diffusion process and maintain the alloying elements in solid solution. This is done by quenching from the solution temperature. For quench-hardenable wrought alloys (2xxx, 6xxx, and 7xxx) and casting al-loys such as 356, this is accomplished
