    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.

    REALLY TS? Reviewed by Stanley LaRue on Dec 20, 2017   5 out of 5

    I have been admiring this sword for quite a while now. I figured why not spend my children's Then they promised it would be here by the end of the day on 12/23/17. Ok, True Swords, has once again delivered a very beautiful, affordable sword to me faster than i can even imagine. My new sword was delivered 12/19/17. TS has a sense of humor, at least I think so. I open this big box, thinking, this thing is HUGE, but inside that box with a ton of padding, was another box. i rip open that box, and find another box(the sword display box), so i gently open that box, thinking I'm Indiana Jones about to find the Arc, and the sword is in a sword bag. Well played TS, well played. seriously though, i got a great sword, very affordable( guess my kids will get their inheritance after all) and amazingly beautiful, delivered Earlier than i expected. One last thing, there was a note in the bag, stating the obvious, "no matter how strong the steel is in a sword blade, it will nick when struck against something equally hard like a tree trunk. there are other tools such as axes and machetes which are designed for this purpose." i understand cutting mats and plastic bottles and other cutting training, but seriously, why would you use an item with such beauty on anything like that? Zombies, the jury is still out on how well it performs against them. lol. If you want a great affordable addition to you sword collection, or if this is your first sword, I highly recommend this sword.
