Heat Treating Steel

Steel can have remarkably different characteristics depending on how it is heat treated. By heat and cooling steel in different ways, it changes the crystal structure and therefore the characteristics of the steel. One form of steel bends easily when hit with a hammer. Another form shatters. Another form is strong without shattering. It all depends on the heat treatment it receives.
