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.

Great sword one problem Reviewed by on Apr 14, 2017   4 out of 5

I received this sword for my birthday and it is a great blade polished nicely but it has only a very very slight curve in is kind of like a 1 edged long sword

Awesome Reviewed by Tj Elliott on Nov 22, 2016   4 out of 5

Beautiful sword, great weight as well, pretty sharp, downside is scabbard needs polished, has some blue paint in the white paint, and the tip of the blade actually came chipped. Not too big of a chip, hopefully can sand it down.

7/5 Reviewed by Caleb Lowrance on Nov 16, 2016   5 out of 5

Love this sword! The finish on this Damascus steel is amazing. Everyone I showed this sword to was in awe of the color of the blade. The shipping was excellent, it actually came into a day early too. It was sharp but I had it sharpened by an expert, and very little of the finish came off of it but that was expected. I recommend trueswords to anyone collecting swords/weapons in general.

Nice Reviewed by on Mar 08, 2016   5 out of 5

This sword is great, nice firm weight, great sharpness, and good overall simple design. The blade itself looks really good with the brown swirls of the Damascus steel. It came in a nice case with a inside padding and a sword cover. The sword cover did leave some ink stains on the white handle but it can be easily washed off. Great for slashing things and like all katanas limited piercing. Overall great sword at a great price. (shipping may take a while if not express ordered)

This is a awesome Nodachi, and best part of it, perfect color. Why? Because I hung it on a white wall, asked a fellow worker how do you like the sword while pointing to the wall, all I got was a puzzled look. Pulled the sword from the white wall and they were blown. Excellent quality and a sword that is very reliable. Now, just how to make it a blind man's walking stick...
