heat treating with clay?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i have just heat treated a blade usibg a coating of clay thikest at the spine and was wondering if grinding will affect the hamon lines?
any insight to this woulkd be greatly apperciated
thanks in advance.

If there is a hamon it will not be affected by grinding as long as you do not get it hot enough to change the colour of the steel. What type of steel are you using and is there a visible hamon now?
