    This Shinwa Blue Odachi Damascus steel sword is a royal treasure indeed, featuring a massive 36" hand-forged Damascus steel blade that is honed to a razor-sharp edge. It features a blood groove spanning the blade in traditional Samurai style. The oversized handle of this odachi is encased in genuine ray skin and then graciously wrapped with royal blue cord for a truly regal look and feel.

    The custom dueling Samurai warrior tsuba only adds more desirability to this inspired design. It includes a high-gloss lacquered scabbard to house the mighty blade and measures a staggering 60" in overall length. This five-foot Samurai wonder is a must-have piece for true sword collectors.

    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 was the first shinwa blade I ordered, and it is incredible. the blade is incredibly sharp and completely sturdy. even after cutting through multiple objects( wood, fruit, metal) it maintains its edge perfectly. this blade is definitely worth any price.

    This sword is absolutely amazing! The blade is firm, and while it's not exactly full tang, it can stand against the weight of another sword, and it can cause some serious damage to whatever you decide to womp on. There are little figures on the tsuba and butt of the hilt that i have no idea what they are, but they're a nice touch. When i got this monster, it was rather dull (I know not if it was exposed to be sharpened) but after a bit of sharpening, it was razor sharp. The blade is 3/4's of an inch thick, and has a deep blood grove. Its appearance to someone 50 yards, or 15 feet in front of you would instill both fear and awe. 5/5 stars True Swords, ya'll are the best!

    Ive purchased a few shinwa blades if your to pick only this is it. This hands down is the best odachi blade at under 300 as is the nicest of the shinwa line. Both swords I have purchased were real you can even see very slight hammering on the massive blade. Buy it use it love it.
