Steel Finishing

Steel Finishes

Customize your product with Scaleless, Polished, Blue, Bright, and Gold finishes
Offering both Scaleless and Polished surfaces customers choose from a variety of colors for our hardened product. Utilizing proprietary technologies developed at Blue Blade Steel, color is determined by a thin oxide layer that is created during processing. By controlling the thickness of this oxide layer through high precision instruments we are able to create both gold and blue colors. Bright (or silver) is also available.
