Heat-trap paste- has anyone ever used it to mask a blade edge...

...while drawing a soft temper on the back? I'm thinking of making a dotanuki styled blade (slightly wider/thicker katana style) from oil-quench patternwelded alloys (1084/L6 or 15N20) but using this paste on the edge while I draw additional temper on the blade back, so I get a back hardness in the 40's whilst maintaining a cutting edge in the high 50's. Sort of reverse hamon thing using the paste if you follow me.
