    How did the Swamp manage to DHT that hamon to such precision? o_O

    Man I love the bare steel temper line :cool: I have an old school Ratweiler that I’m giving serious consideration to stripping. Thanks for posting!

    Have one just like that and wondered the same thing. Actually two, but the other one hasn't been stripped :).

    I've always suspected that was how the DHT was accomplished given the hamon lines visible on said blades. I think the blade was drawn through an electromagnetic field to heat just a specific area, and with how it looks, I think the part heated in this way was the edge.

    I could be totally wrong too though, lol. :p

    It does kinda have a tri-tone look to it with the way the light hits the grind. I was a little hesitant to do the strip and blast job, but the result was way cool IMO. It's hard to beat the old chopweilers for an all-arounder :cool:
