    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.

    Disappointed Reviewed by Mohammad Chowdhury on Sep 11, 2015   5 out of 5

    Got it today and was excited till I realized it's not sharp at all. Everything else about the sword is beautiful but my main concern was it being sharp where it disappointed me.

    You want a sword? Trueswords has provided this nice piece of Damascus steel whose edge is extra sharp and blade's looks is as if it was cooled with a non-flammable petrol oil. The sheath is the right size making it nice and snug to pull the sword out that once you do that, you'll open a nice fragrance of a Cherry wood on a wet morning spring. Want a good sword? Get this one, it's worth it. Thank TS.
