Are those squiggly lines really where the two steels are bonded together?
In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

Yep, up close you can actually see the thin line of copper that's used to weld two steel together! The backing is their regular steel, and edge is ZDP189 and CPM D2. In case of D2 I believe it's acid treated to bring out the color contrast.

Here's a close up:

That's different thou, hamon lines are naturally occured when you differentially heat treat the blade. But I believe kershaw got the idea from it.

Thx for the info, yeah I know bout the lines on swords and the way they are formed, and now I know how Kershaw does it and my concern is their way looks great, but leaves the blade fragile.

I'v thought of the same thing actually, but they've been doing it for a while now, and I've never heard of the weld break, so I think it's safe. Besides, they have lifetime warrenty if that ever happens.
