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.

I got this today. It was like Christmas. I opened the box, to find a beautiful display box inside. I opened the display box to find the sword wrapped in a black bag. The anticipation was driving me crazy. I took the sword out of the bag and found a very beautifully crafted sword. The edges weren't razor sharp, but i can fix that. overall the sword is beautiful. It has a nice weight to it. I feel it is a Great sword for the price. no problems with this sword at all. i love it.

Fake damascus Reviewed by on Oct 01, 2015   2 out of 5

I bought this sword a couple months ago and was surprised at what I found. The sword had plenty of glue at where the blade entered the handle, and sawdust regularly gets stuck on the blade from the scabbard. It also isn't real damascus steel, just a coating made to look like one. The blade is a bit weak and when put against my 1942 U.S. sword it was easily chipped. The box is cheap and it is easy for the fabric on the inside to slip and for the styrofoam to come out. You can also clearly see the wood of the handle because the cord wrapping doesn't cover it. It seems weird to me too that almost every review here has 5/5 stars, even the ones where they only say that it is terrible. This review is 1/5.

Absolutely love this sword, its easily the favorite of my collection. If I absolutely have to find a complaint, its that i dont like the box it comes with, but to be honest its not that bad; it just gives it an older Asian feel. Its not a bad thing, it just looks out of place. But the blade itself was perfect! Super sharp on both sides, and i love the color! I dont have a problem with the square guard, not sure how it would hurt you really. And the scabbard is pretty nice as well. It does have weight to it from the full tang and it is real Damascus! I own several Damascus products and this is by far my favorite, totally worth it!

Great blade, strong and heavy,good scabbard,,also the handle is well wrapped. I just wish that this blade came with a smooth, rounded guard. The square guard has sharp corners that hurt.

I finally got this sword almost half an hour ago, and I must say I am satisfied. I'll admit that after reading the reviews that gave this sword a bad rating, I was scared to buy it. But now, I can let out a sigh of relief. This weapon is even better than Trueswords described it. The black blade is super sharp, everything on it is really tight so nothing on it is wobbly or can move freely, and it's surprisingly heavier than I expected. But I know the extra weight is from the full tang, which makes this sword even stronger. I highly recommend this weapon. This gets a 5 out of 5.

Reviewed by Mothyis on Dec 14, 2014   5 out of 5

First off great looking sword, second the sword is a bit thin and therefore it snapped at my match. I also have my doubts about it being "full tang", I believe it is a "half tang" or it just might be a crappy handle. But this is a review and I would say this blade is worth to have if you can duel wield 1 large 1 light considering the katana as large But ya very good peice
