Forging” refers to one of the key steps in the knife and blade manufacturing process when forging a blade. This is done during the stage of forging and shaping the steel of the blade.

The characteristics and purpose of forging are explained below:

  1. Initial stage of forging: This is the process that takes place in the early stages of forging. Forging is the process of heating and beating the steel into shape, and the dojo is the first blow or several blows of the process.
  2. Making the material uniform: One of the purposes of forging is to equalize the temperature of the steel, removing impurities and making the material homogeneous. This improves the quality and consistency of the blade.
  3. Shaping: The steel is beaten and shaped to give it the desired shape and dimensions. The basic shape of the knife is determined at this stage.
  4. Structural Shaping: Forging is the process by which the structure of the steel is prepared. During the forging process, the microstructure improves the strength and durability of the blade.
  5. Steel denaturation: Forging causes the steel to denature (metamorphose) and become harder. This is an important process to ensure the hardness and sharpness required for knives.

Forging is a very important process in the manufacture of kitchen knives, and it is a process that requires the skill and experience of the craftsman. This process determines the basic shape and performance of the knife and affects the final result.
