I don't need to. I'm assuming it's lead and proceeding accordingly. I haven't had much luck with the profile and durability of the standard shave hooks in the link provided; was hoping for something better. Also, curious: for carbon steel, how many linear feet is normal before you should expect to resharpen?

If it's lead paint I'd be using a chemical stripper, not a heat gun.
Google "Peel Away"

Infrared quartz halogen lamp. Precise control over temperature, below the point where lead vaporizes. 2015, people.

Oh dear, no insult intended. '2015, people' was meant as a 'yay modern technology' type of comment.
