Sokhas was a metal that was indestructible. It's natural form, if heated and not tampered with, and then naturally cooled could only be broken by enormous amounts of magicka fired directly at it. It was not difficult to forge items using Sokhas. It was only as hard as forging other metals. It, when artificially forged, was susceptible to extreme heat, force, or concentrated forces that could break Ayleid meteoric iron weaponry as well.
