What is Folded Steel?

Folding steel swords involves hammering, folding and then forge welding the steel multiple times.  Each time this process is repeated it doubles the number of folds present in the steel which creates thousands of layers in the end sword.  Originally this process was performed to homogenize the carbon content of the steel but nowadays its performed for its aesthetic merit.
