The complexity of the bainite morphology impede the interpretation of its growth mechanism. It is here shown how one can acquire a morphology that is easier to interpret by sectioning the structure parallel to its edgewise and sideways growth directions. Such morphology is feather-like and the ferritic component has the same appearance as Widmanstätten plates revealing a close relationship between the two microstructures. Isothermally transformed specimens of an Fe-0.3C-0.5Si (in mass %) steel have been metallographically examined in a wide range of temperature, i.e. from the eutectoid temperature down to below the martensite start temperature, Ms confirmed that such feathery morphology exists in the whole temperature range and thus should be treated as the intrinsic nature of bainite.
