Hello Ariel,

Quote:
Just a query: would it be correct to assume that the kris blade is laminated thru and thru and the dark edges are the result of differential tempering?
No, most kris blades are of sandwich construction with a central layer of hardened steel (dark after staining) and laminated mild steel as outer layers (lighter areas).

Regards,
Kai
