hand forging samurai sword blades process

About Shinwa:

Shinwa swords are made by hand using traditional methods in the ancient sword-making township of Lonquan. The sword-making history of this town can be traced back to the twentieth year of the Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty – exceptional sword making continues there still today. The swordsmiths of Lonquan can apprentice for up to six years before they begin to forge these functional works of art on their own.

Each Shinwa sword is hand forged at temperatures of up to 1,100 °F and continuously heated, folded, hammered and shaped before being oil quenched and then straightened. Damascus steel blades are folded as many as ten times to yield up to 2,056 layers of premium Damascus steel. After quenching the blade is then ground and hand sharpened and polished by the swordsmith on a series of wet stones. Each set of these wet stones contains a finer level of silicate particles, which produces an even sharper edge. In the final stages of this painstaking process, the tsuka is wrapped and tsuba and other fittings are added before a thin coat of oil is added to the blade to prevent corrosion.

This sword looked really cool online then when I purchased it and opened it right away the sword was rattling in the sheath which was a buzz kill, then when I un seethed it, it was dull, and I think it is heavier than it should be. This is my second sword that I have purchased from Trueswords and I was not impressed the first one I am still satisfied with. I bought this a while ago but never but a review for it

nice sword for the price Reviewed by Seul Chang on Sep 15, 2015   4 out of 5

Great sword. however, it would be better if the logo and the manufacturing info wasn't on the blade.

Not a bad sword. This is my second sword that I have bought from trueswords. I have to say I was extremely excited to get my sword but when I opened the box I was a little disappointed. I don't believe it was balanced well and it looks like the hamon was painted on. Also mine does not fit well in the scabbard. Otherwise not a bad display sword. I do like that it is different and unique.

its a very good sword for the price, but my only complaint is that the Damascus in orange and not the crimson red that I was expecting. gotta love the double blood grove on BOTH sides! best use of my money on a weapon yet! this was my first purchase from Trueswords and the shipping was great, it got here in 3 days and no damage to the sword whatsoever

This is my first sword I have purchased from Trueswords. The sword arrived within a week of order, which is unusual since I live in a remote town in SE NM. I am extremely satisfied with the workmanship and quality of the blade. The box it came in is also very nice, I was not expecting such quality. The blade arrived extremely sharp, as sharp as my professional cutlery I use to cook with (I am an amature chef). I imagine I could cut paper thin slices of tomatoes with it if I so desired. This is a quality sword and I would recommend it to anyone interested.

This sword is amazing the blade is very sharp. Correct weight and feel. Was not expecting the level of quality that not only went into the blade but its box. No play in the blade where the tsuba meets. All in all a magnificent sword for the price
