Hamon styles-hardened pattern

Hamon are the hardening marks left behind after hardening the steel edge to make good quality cutting edges Though they look different and change part of the metal, the Hamon doesn’t influence negatively the blade but enhances the edge quality. The Hamon is designed and determined by sword simth, using clay flowing down the edge to control hardening and create patternson the edge. Though strikingly beautiful, theHamon pattern isn’tnecessarily  for judging blade quality.
