    Shinwa is committed to bringing you top-quality, hand-forged swords that will surpass your expectations every time. This latest katana sword tells that same story, featuring a 26-1/2" blade that has been forged at temperatures of more than 1000 degrees and hand sharpened by master sword smiths. Authentic details like the heavy blood groove and cast zinc alloy tsuba and menuki dress it up. The ray skin handle is encased in teal cord wrappings, and the hardwood scabbard is decorated to match. Measures 39" overall with powerful full-tang construction.

    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.

    Beautiful Sword Reviewed by Brian Haack on Apr 13, 2018   5 out of 5

    Bought this as a gift, and couldn't be happier. It came in a decorative gift box that made for a stunning reveal! Thank you True Sword!

    This sword is beautiful. It will mainly be a display piece, but I love that it came sharp. I only wish they offered a matching wakizashi and tanto so I could have a set.

    Great Sword Reviewed by Shelley Gibson on Oct 05, 2016   5 out of 5

    I'm pleased with my Katana... It has some weight to her though... the deep blood grove makes the sword worth the price... The Katana arrived to me in good shape, and had a nice coat of oil on the blade...the only problem the sword has is with the brass fitting... I didn't receive a decorative box... But over all, if I were given the choice again, I would buy it...

    The sword arrived to me yesterday, and I must admit, i feel it is worth the money or monies... Sharp blade, full tang...I would rate this sword as 5 out of 5... I am happy with my decision to purchase this sword... The blade is slightly long, and shakes a lot to one side though, as long as this sword is 80.00, it's a deal

    Worth the money Reviewed by on Jan 07, 2016   5 out of 5

    This sword is better than most if it's on sale for 80$ it's great but if it's 170$ it's a 4 out of five The blade itself is great looking especially the brass fittings the sheath as a whole is its weakness it is painted ok but not great and the actual it is a little bit to big so the sword does wobble on the inside but not to bad The blade also had a good coat of oil so it was in good condition on arrival the decorative box had two punctures on it but I blame shipping for that even so the box still had no damage on the top Overall if you want a katana in the price range of 80$ to 120$ get this or a Musashi
