Differential Hardening
Subject: Engineering | Topics:

Differential hardening is most cases used in bladesmithing to boost the toughness of an blade while keeping high hardness and strength at the edge. This aids to make the sharp edge very resistant in order to breaking, by generating the spine very soft and flexible, but allows greater hardness at the edge than can be possible if this blade was consistently quenched and tempered.
