During the forging process, all of the slags and impurities of the carbon steel are burned off and forged folded to an uncompromised strength with an very sharp cutting edge. The hamon pattern is done by differential hardening with clay temperd. The hardening process is made by utilizing a special clay on the edge, so it gets a different temperature and cools in different time than the rest of the blade, becoming harder and quenching the blade when it is cooled on water. It is a very complex technique, as if not properly executed the blade will break. The fire can't be too warm or cold, only a good swordsmith knows the exact temperature.The blade then get its shape with a beautiful hamon hada and Martensite (grains) on its surface. This way the edge can be very hard and the mune -the spine of the sword- softer giving it an excelent toughness.
The perfect combination of a hard edge with the increased Sori (curvature of the blade) with a strong mune, enables this high quality blade to easily cut through tatami, straw mats or bamboo for Tameshigiri. This blade has a full length tang which greatly enhances the strength of the sword.
