Immediately after the quenching is complete, the knife is left in 100℃ water, before it then gets pounded to straighten the surface using a hammer. Next, the straightened knife in its hard and brittle state is left in oil heated to 180℃. After that it is slightly heated once more to give the steel flexibility.
