Pardon my ignorance. What is the difference between "blue hands" and "blued hands?" Does making the hands blue involve a process of some kind?
Yes, if you expose steel to a flame for JUST the right amount of time, it turns blue. Too much, and it turns black. One watchmaker I spoke with says that about 75% of the hands they try to blue, end up ruined.
