What is a hada on a katana?

I've just got a new sword, folded steel with hamon it's the kawashima dragon warrior and it said in the description "prominent hada" but I have no idea what it is, can anyone explain it to me please?

"HADA - grain in steel, pattern of folding the steel"

"The hada is the visible design of the grain of the sword steel. It is a result of the way the sword was folded during forging. Hada can be difficult for the beginner to interpret and it is easily obscured by a poorly polished blade or one which is stained or rusted."
