This sword has been hand forged by our Japanese traditional method, Clay Tempering. The gray area is the clay covered range. The Smith puts clay on the blade and leaves the edge clear. The blade will be heated to red then quenched into water. Therefore, the clay covered area helps the blade to keep its flexibility. The crystal clear natural hamon line is achieved from clay tempering.
