You know "CLAD metal
- It is a composite metal partly or entirely
together of different
kinds of metals.
- Metal composition shows higher performance
which respective materials alone do not possess
and the performance complements opposite
characteristics of each material, that is
Clad Effect on Cutleries
Like Japanese swords, clad metal is hard
to break or bend, thanks to the toughness as the hard steel part is clad with soft steels.
- Easy to work on
Cladded structure is easy to apply on such
works as forging, grinding, sharpening or
polishing to make a sharp blade.
- Improved corrosion resistance
Proper material combination generates electrical
potential difference and it enhances the
corrosion resistance on blade edge.
- Better and long lasting sharpness
Steel after forging pressure makes the microscopic
structure denser and improves the sharpness
and ensures long lasting performance.
- Resource saving
As high class steel is used only for necessary
part, it is perfectly cost effective..
- Easy distortion correction
As the steel is bonded with soft steel materials,
its blade is hard to break and the distortion
correction is easy.
- Easy drilling and welding after heat treatment
Though the steel gets harder after heat treatment,
the soft steel never loses its softness,
enabling the material to be drilled or welded.
- Design improvement
Laminated patterns or Damascus patterns appear
from basis materials which are bonded with
different kinds of metals.
