Damascus folded steel is made by 1060 carbon steel which was folded 13 times creating 8192 layers, you can see the subtle and visible layers on blade. This not only looks beautiful but also has flexibility. Clay Tempering is the process of using clay to insulate the parts of the metal that you want softened so that when the sword is heated and quenched, they cool more slowly. Then you can actually see the difference in hard and soft metal because there is a visible temper line (beautiful curves) on the blade, called the hamon. Clay tempered blade is more resistant and durable which has both strength and flexibility. It is also available to customize hamon structure if you send us details, such as hamon pictures.
