The 1095 High Carbon Steel blade features beautiful tempering work along the whole length of the blade and no bo-hi (lightening groove) making it a fuller feeling blade, sharpened to medium/sharp edge and stunning to behold.
The beautiful real hammon on the blade is the result of the artist applying clay to the blade & differentially cooling it (quenching and tempering) to form the gorgeous wave pattern shown.
