Each and every head in the FT line, are re-heated once again after the forging and rested in a tempered straw ash for 72 hours.
Stage 1: Fresh Forged
The forging stress and fast cooling from the forging process cause the micro metal structure (grains) to be distorted.
Stage 2: Reheat
At our factory, we place the heated heads inside a container filled with natural straw ash. This is a traditional blacksmith technique used for generations among the Japanese blacksmiths.
Stage 3: Perfection
After a long 3-day cooling process, all the metal structure within the head is re-structured evenly, creating the premium feel.
