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.

Great sword. i love it. Well worth the price. it comes with a beautiful display box and a cloth bag as well. i bought a wall rack for my swords, but that wouldn't do justice to this sword. i am going to put it on a shelf to display the display box with the sword resting in it. Great quality and nice edges. Well worth the price. no complaints from me. highly recommend it to anyone that wants a fully functional sword for a great price.

sad, blade covered in wax, "damascus" came off while cutting, handle was plastic "covered", and the edge was not sharp. Will never buy shinwa ever again.

Not a Shinwa fan here: This would be a great blade for defense if it had a hard wood handle instead of the course, uncomfortable and unreliable cord wrap, and if the blade was a bit wider and shorter, say 31-33 inches over all length. The 41 inch length straight sword is too heavy,slow and cumbersome. I would gladly spend 100 plus on a better balanced sword.
