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 is awesome. The first thing I did was slice a Gatorade bottle. The blade is perfection and the case it comes in astounded me. A must buy in my personal opinion.

Caught this on the BOGO sale so received two for the price of one! Ordered on a Friday and had them Monday afternoon. GA to ME in just three days is absolutely fantastic. Thank you TS and FedEx ground! Both swords came in their own very nice display box. Each was in a sword bag. Both had sharp edges - made clean cuts right out of the box. One of them had a very slight wobble but the other was tight. These are my first double-edged swords. I am in no way any expert, but they felt good in balance and weight. The pictures in the display above do not do the piece full justice. The blades are beautiful. In my opinion, TS is a quality company and I recommend them to anyone looking for value and service. They will have all my business.

Still waiting on it to arrive but I purchased it due to a friend of mines that has it and it is truly amazing. Such sharpness and the perfect length as well.

Comes in a display worthy sword case, has a beautiful look to it. It is wicked sharp, and every bit as elegant as described.
