The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire.

I wonder if that's true? Literally?

I know that control of the cooling process is very important -- different patterns of cooling result in different crystalline structures suitable for different applications...

Go with the metaphor and all will be well. Material scientists are so literal.

I'm a historian ;-)

So I could have pointed out that there was a time when cooling a blade in the bodily fluids of a red-headed youth was considered to make the finest steel!

That sounds very much like anti-celtic propoganda to me.
