(the color under the black ito;white, black , red , green).In the forging process , the most useful process is the folding, where the metals are forge welded, folded, and welded again, as many as 16 times. The folding removes impurities and helps even out the carbon content, while the alternating layers combine hardness with ductility to greatly enhance the toughness.
The less impurities, the harder and sharper the blade will be. We have done cutting tests on the blades. It can cut bamboo(young bamboo tree). Grass mattings and slice paper(The blade should be tilted at 45 degrees). Forging is complete, the steel is not quenched in the conventional European fashion (uniformly throughtout the blade).
To maximize both the cutting edge and the resilience of the spine, a technique of differential heat-treatment is used. The sword is painted with layers of clay before heating, providing a thin layer or none at all on the edge of the sword, ensuring quick cooling to maximize the hardening for the edge. A thicker layer of clay is applied to the rest of the blade, causing slower cooling.
This creates softer, more resilient steel, allowing the blade to absorb shock without breaking. The wakizashi has a blade between 30 and 60 cm (12 and 24 inch), with wakizashi close to the length of a katana being called o-wakizashi and wakizashi closer to tant length being called ko-wakizashi. The wakizashi being worn together with the katana was the official sign that the wearer was a samurai or swordsman of feudal Japan. The katana was the big or long sword and the wakizashi the companion sword. Wakizashi are not necessarily just a smaller version of the katana; they could be forged differently and have a different cross section.
