What is Clay Tempering?
Clay tempered blades have clay painstakingly hand-applied in different thicknesses during forging which yields two types of steel - a soft backbone which provides flexibility and a hard edge which can cut effortlessly. This is one of the highest-quality forging techniques producing a hard blade while still allowing flexibility. For more information, see our Sword Guide.
