Seasoning

The process of repeatedly heating a new titanium concentrate nail prior to first use. The necessity of seasoning, and the correct seasoning process are a somewhat disputed topic. Some users claim that it is completely unnecessary to season a nail at all. Some claim the correct method is repeatedly heating the nail until red hot, then dunking in cold water to rapidly cool the metal. Others state that the nail should be heated repeatedly and small amounts of oil or reclaim should be used to build up a layer over the top of the nail.
