Default wootz blade with an interesting hamon

I found a blade where I could capture a temper line. You also see a darker zone in the lower half of the blade and in the last couple of pictures you can pick up 2 temper lines running towards the tip.

That does look like a quench signature, especially the way it turns up on the blade towards the tip.
Interesting!

Jeff

Thanks for making comment. It looks as though their is a double temper line and even a ghostly shadow of a third. Perhaps done to improve the performance of the tip of the blade?

S. Al-Anizi,

For me, it is not a quantity issue but rather a quality issue. I really do not have many pieces in my collection. When I first started collecting a real old timer that had been collecting for 70+ years told me to simply buy what I like and enjoy but focus on the best quality I could afford.
