*this blade carries a differential heat treat represented by the hamon (wiggly line down the blade) Often seen in traditional Japanese blade smithing, a hamon represents a differential heat treat. The spine of the knife is packed with clay before thermal hardening, thereby remaining a little softer than the cutting edge, making an overall tougher blade while not compromising edge retention.
