2.A special clay was applied on the blade to control the rate at which the blades cools when quenced after grinding(rough finishing).The clay ensures carbon does not simply escape during this process.What’s more,we are Applying different thicknesses of clay to the edge and spine(back) of the blade respectively(Differential hardening),a beautiful real hamon was appeared on the balde result of Differential hardening.
3.The blade was well heat treating (Refining) and quenching(Tempering) greatly improve the hardness and flexibility of the balde for real use.

Clay To Protect The Edge And Quenched In Water To Temper The Mune Or Spine Of The Sword. The Hardness Of The Carbon Steel Measures At An Impressive HRC On The Rockwell Scale.
