Thread: Tutorial for a hamon

    Tutorial for a hamon

    When I have grinding the blade ...
    leaving a thick about 1.5 mm to the cutting edge.
    on a transparent sheet is drawn the outline



    now I make the design of the 'hamon


    This is important in order to obtain the satanite on precise points of both sides of the blade










    is allowed to dry for at least 24 hours

    once flow to the blade temperature is turned off for 3 or 4 seconds in water and then immediately immersed in oil

    then immediately in the oven for the tempering

    after the oven sandpaper coarse-grained and fine-grained
    grain 60

    grain 120 and 240

    grain 600

    grain a 800 o 1000

    soldering

    after removal perfectly oil to the blade skips to the 'etching
    I use a part of ferric chloride and 5 parts of water is surrounded by the blade and left for 4 to 5 minutes

    the blade is then washed with soap and aqueous and eliminated all the 'surface oxidation that forms

    he process is repeated for 3 times in order to allow the chloride mark more deeply the blade

    now the blade is immersed in a solution of water and bircabonato so as to stop the 'action of chloride ferrrico

    subsequently is sprayed oil and packaged for one night with a bit of paper and abundant oil

    after the night we proceed to the polishing and highlighting of the 'hamon

    first of all do a pass with wheel rags to remove the bulk of the dirt

    better then wipe with alcohol and clean paper making sure to change the paper gets dirty appenna



    cream for cars and a woolen cloth continuous polishing



    note the difference of "porosity" of the 'steel between the softer and the harder


    before polishing with paste

    after
