I've been wondering about this for quite some time now,
but I can't find a definitive answer.
One of my display cases spends quite allot of time in the sunlight. Normally I put a white pillowcase over the glass top to prevent direct heat from the sun.
Sadly, I forgot to do this last night and when I held a knife 10 minutes ago, it could burn your hands...
How does heat affect the knives?
Is it bad for the steel tempering, the FRN, oil, etc?
One of my micarta scaled knives had a damp film on the scales... I'm guessing from the epoxy.
Please enlighten me on the effects of this!
