    Top shit, and thanks for taking the time to write up. Making the internet a better place

    Note on traditional jap knife making: all the steel would have come from a bloomery (ore refinery), certain reigons known for better steel than others. Strength gained by forging and folding, sometimes thousands of times.
    Heat treatment was achieved by encasing the spine in clay, heating the whole thing in a forge, and quenching.
    The clay retarded cooling of the spine, keeping it supple, while allowing the cutting edge to get full-hard and take a good edge
