The steel color sometimes with a little bit have been changed.
This color is the residue when it is cooled by immersion in water during heat treatment.
The lead is melted, the temperature is raised to 800 degrees, and the ax is placed in it.
If put the ax directly, the lead will remain on the surface of the ax, so apply the mud to the ax first. Mud mixtures will vary from blacksmith to blacksmith. This color is the peeling part of the soil. This is what happens normally.
If use oil quenching that will showing beautiful color, but water quenching sometimes becomes like this due to mud preparation.
Water quenching is the top skill in Japan, that can give steel become too harder than oil quenching. I hope you can understand the forging process.
